Kyun Kyun Ladki
Kyun Kyun Ladki addresses the possibilities that education can open up for young girls. Theatre practitioner Sanyukta Saha engages with adolescent girls in two villages of the Sawai Madhopur district in Rajasthan where girls stop going to schools after grade 8, making their drop-out rate much higher than that of the boys in their villages. Urbanisation and the development of tourism has further exacerbated the situation of uneven development and the project aims to create a space that is safe, that nurtures curiosity for young girls and creates a possibility for them to connect with their dreams. Kyun Kyun Ladki builds into an exploration and expression of the girls’ relationships with their families and larger communities. Theatre-led integrated arts methodologies will create a space for expression, critical thinking and dialogue between the girls and the community they inhabit.
