Free theatre workshop for kids with special needs in Amritsar!
June 30, 2018
Impressed by the performance put up by a group of children with special needs from the Pehal Resource Centre, the Punjab Naatshala has announced free workshop for two months for the children. The organization will also bear the cost of teaching theatre to them.
The play staged by the kids was called Pehal and talked about the challenges faced by children with physical and intellectual disabilities. It also brought up the social isolation their families face because of the particular lifestyle they have to follow.
Director Emmanual Singh told the story from the point of view of a neglected child. Singh said his play was based on his experiences interacting with kids with special needs.
After the play, a new auditorium of Punjab Naatshala that has been specially designed for performances by disabled artists, was also opened to the public.
