Bol Jamoore, a theatre festival on child rights, will bring thirteen theatre groups to Kolkata’s streets and public spaces in a bid to draw attention to children’s basic rights. The performers range from school going children, to social workers and theatre professionals.These amateur and professional groups will use theatre, magic, one-act plays, puppetry and mime to bring to the streets
of Kolkata the realities of children’s lives.
Since its inception more than a decade ago, this theatre festival, a CRY initiative, has not only provided a dynamic and effective platform for the artists but also found an emotional connect with the audience in the city. Hugely successful as a medium, it takes forward CRY’s belief that each individual – wherever they be or whatever they do, can join the movement to ensure child rights. The festival is being organized by the “Theatre Forum for Child Rights” (TFCR), a forum supported by CRY and the festival aims to generate awareness on various social issues and reach out to public as an audience. The entire event is focused on sensitizing people on issues like child labour, poverty and core issues of deprivation.
Please be there to support CRY and all our wonderful participants!
