International Theatre Festival Friday 25 July

YUVA EKTA-Youth Unite from New Delhi, India present Shoonya se Shikar: A Journey of Transformation
Friday 25th July, 7.30pm
Shoonya se Shikar: A Journey of Transformation looks at the challenges of Democracy and Diversity, and of Change and Development, which focus not just on economic growth, but also the social empowerment of the marginalised. Through the lives of our protagonists, Raju and Maya who inhabit two completely different realities, Bharat and India, we bring you stories that criss-cross the length and breadth of India…stories of the soil, of struggle, transition, change, growth, weaving a tapestry of progress and hope.
“Shoonya se Shikhar” (from nowhere to somewhere) is the story of a boy in a village in India, of a girl in the city and their struggle to change things around them.

What happens when the song has ended? When you are a hundred miles from the home you’re fighting for, what would you give to hear it again?
When the Great War breaks out a small town stands strong under the occupation. The front line filters into the hearts of those left at home and a group of choristers reunite to fight together. Finding a breath of their past crumbling in the fields of France they risk all they have to protect it.
This is a tale of beauty and of destruction. Using choral music, inventive physical theatre and ensemble performance Hotel Echo Theatre Co. tell a story of the harmonies amongst the chaos.
