Join Asia Society India Centre for the Mumbai debut of the powerful monologue "Walk", theatre artist Maya Krishna Rao's response to the horrific gang rape of December 2012 in Delhi. "Walk" was created in a few hours as part of the strong and immediate outrage that reverberated across India and the world. Since its inception, "Walk" has had over 30 performances in offices, schools, colleges, on the streets, and at the 2013 Jaipur Literature Festival. The piece comes from a deeply reflective space, drawing the audience in to think, to reflect, to walk; its content has adapted to fresh events, and it is often improvised during performance.
As the world gears up to mark International Women's Day on March 8, the prevalence of deep and systemic issues of violence against women around the world remain of crucial concern. Across South Asia, as women's voices are raised for improved access to health and education, increased political participation, and financial inclusion, "Walk" energises, empowers, and inspires; Rao's theatre speaks to all - men and women alike - to carve a new way forward.
Your ticket to this performance includes a drink and appetisers.
