Sapne Aam Aadmi ke- the Yuva Ekta Nukkad Naatak 2010 was staged in front of a vast audience at Dilli Haat on 19th June. The energy of the students, their enthusiasm and vigour and their brilliant performances despite the scorching June heat was remarkable! Almost a month of continuous and rigorous workshops, involving all sorts of theater exercises and group work went into the making of ‘Sapne Aam Aadmi ke”! The result was a spellbinding and touching street play performed by┬áthe students of Salaam Baalak ┬áTrust, Bluebells School International and St Mary’s School.

The audience was thoroughly touched by the themes the play managed to cover- hunger, female foeticide, differentiation based on gender and class, child mortality due to preventable diseases and many more. For a group comprising of children less than 17 years of age, these themes were very intense and involved a lot of delving into very deep emotional experiences. With the help of our previous years’ Yuva Ekta students, who also helped facilitate the workshops , the group managed to script and enact these characters with a lot of truth!

Here are some pictures of the performance…
