Ten-Second Takeaway

Conceptualised by Arundhati Nag, EQUAL is a three-day theatre fest that centres around the theme of gender equality. Happening in April, the event will include discussions, testimonials, and, of course, plays.

Giving Voice

Ranga Shankara, Bangalore’s favourite theatre space, is all set to launch the first edition of EQUAL —Women’s Voices For A Common Humanity. Curated by stalwarts like Arundathi Nag, Vanamala Viswanatha, and Deepa Ganesh, the fest will unfold between the Friday, April 7 and Sunday, April 9, 2017. EQUAL is a going to be a biennial feature from here on and in its first outing, it looks to focus on pressing issues related to gender equality.

Through the three days, you can participate in discussions and forums revolving around several aspects. These include examining women and literature, tracing the progress of the women’s movement in the country, and testimonials from women in the garment industry as well those who have worked with sex workers.

Act On It

Of course, no fest at Ranga Shankara can be complete without the performances. At 7.30 pm on each day of the fest, a play has been scheduled. On the first day, Chitrapata Ramayana — a Yakshagana performance — will unfold. This will be followed by The License {based on the short stories by Saadat Hasan Manto and Bertolt Brecht} on day 2 and Brhannala {a rhythm performance} on day three. Poetry performances and photography exhibitions are also part of the fest’s itinerary.
