Based on the Union Carbide gas tragedy, the play, We All Live in Bhopal looks at the disaster from different perspectives and also engages the audience in a discussion.
Presented by Global Shapers Bangalore (a city-based community that takes up events which have a positive impact on the society) and devised by Sudhir Selvaraj (founding trustee of city-based Renegade Arts and Theatre Society), We All Live in Bhopal (described as Sketches from Ground Zero) takes a closer look at the Union Carbide industrial disaster of 1984. Following its first show in Bangalore in 2012, the play has had performances in USA and UK. And, it’s coming back to the city.
First person narratives
Based on first-hand accounts from a detailed primary and secondary research on the tragedy, the play portrays pivotal events over the last 30 years (since the disaster), through the perspectives of the victims, the activists and the companies involved. A discussion that follows the play will engage the audience and get them to delve into issues such as environmental damage, the role of civil society and the ethics of corporate responsibility.
