Jul 19/20: VODO presents "Chimeras" in aid of Get Eve-in @ Alliance
"Version One Dot Oh!(VODO) presents “Chimeras” showcasing three of Shashi Despande’s famous short stories: “And what has been decided”, “Hear me Sanjaya…” and “The day of the golden deer”. The stories revolve around three popular figures in mythology: Draupadi, Kunti and Sita. In each of the stories Shashi masterfully reveals a very human side to the characters, thus showing them to be characters one can identify with.
The play is being staged in aid of “Get Eve-in”, a not for profit organisation which fights gender stereotyping in society through its various programs.
Get Eve-in is a voluntary organization for women,initiated nine months ago by three friends who felt strongly against common and fallacious perceptions of women around
them. Get Eve-in has organized many free workshops on self-defence covering women in the age group 10 to 50 yrs as also from diverse economic backgrounds. The workshops include various exercises, self defence tips and also interactive sessions wherein the participants exchanged personal incidents and opinions on gender issues with others. Get Eve-in also provides voluntary opportunities to help women take ownership over public spaces.
