Manthan today took its first international steps with an energizing street play performance in Kathmandu. With a symbolic move to bring about a youth driven revolution of awareness and mass participation beyond borders, Manthan saw eclectic performances in street-play, an art form common to both Indian and Nepalese folk tradition.
Manthan started in 2007 from the by lanes of Jantar Mantar by Verve, the Street Play Society of SSCBS and today in its 9th iteration, it is India’s largest street play festival. The prime motive of Manthan is to initiate a movement, to bring street theatre to public places and schools, to arouse a sense of responsibility and cognizance about sensitive issues maligning the society, amongst the uninitiated.
Economy Decoded is proud to associate with this youth driven initiative which brings together people from diverse walks of life and unites them in their quest to mutual enlightenment about the issues that they collectively face, day in and day out. Team ED and as do our esteemed readers identify with the need and the desire to bring out a change in society by the simple means of spreading awareness.
