2 plays in Hindi for children - Special passes available for NGOs working with children in Bangalore

GILLO, established in 2009, is an independent children's media group based in Mumbai. Our area of work spans from education to the arts and media.
GILLO’s Theatre Wing:
Our theatre wing produces plays specially written and designed for children, with a focus on indigenous content and the Indian context. We also conduct workshops for children, teachers and parents; and organise other activities that engage children with the theatre arts.
Our stage productions include two Hindi plays - Suar Chala Space Ko (2010), a silly-smelly science-fantasy and Kyun Kyun Ladki (2011), based on Mahashweta Devi’s book – The Why Why Girl. These plays have been performed in Mumbai, New Delhi, Pune and Bangalore. We have also created some short performances for children and these are regularly staged at a variety of venues and events.

In 2010 we brought our Hindi play for children SUAR CHALA SPACE KO and staged 6 shows across Bangalore.
GILLO is once again coming to Bangalore.
In Nov 2011 we are bringing 2 plays - KYUN-KYUN LADKI based on Mahashweta Devi's story and SUAR CHALA SPACE KO. Both plays are suitable for age group of 5 to 12 years.
The dates are as follows:

For the above 6 shows in Bangalore, we are offering limited FREE PASSES (20 seats for each show at Jagriti and 30 seats for each show at Ranga Shankara) for children studying in NGO-run centres in Bangalore.
