first_imgInspired by the stories, struggles, dreams and hopes of a motley group of teenagers, Walk! is a show born out of a 4 month intensive arts-for-social-change curriculum. 12 teenagers, cutting across barriers of caste, class, gender, religion, and nationality, have come together to teach each other about the social issues that affect them most deeply as well as the changes they dream of. Walk! is based on the lives and stories of the cast members; while no one plays their own part, the stories are all true. Facilitated by Tasawwur, a collective of artistes and educators, this show brings together song, choreography, tableaus, and stories to take the audience through the world these young people inhabit and the more inclusive world that they dream of.  Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Tasawwur was started by Delhi based poet and educator, Aditi Rao.
