RED LIGHT EXPRESS by Kranti and IS THIS IT ? By Pushing Up The Daisies
RED LIGHT EXPRESS
Kranti (Revolution) empowers girls from Mumbai’s red-light areas to become agents of social change. Born and raised in the red-light district, the girls often face harsh realities early on in their lives. Using drama, they challenge clichés and misconceptions surrounding sex workers and their families.
In 2014, Kranti’s girls wrote, directed and performed a play in dozens of theatres and festivals across the world. Their engaging performances helped change the mindsets of thousands of people about sex workers and their children. Kranti’s latest play, ‘Lal Batti Express (Red-Light Express)’, is a compilation of their life stories and experiences. It is a journey of Krantikaris (Revolutionaries) through their past, present and future.

IS THIS IT?
With Poet and Storyteller, Margot Henderson
A one-woman show that looks death in the face and tells it like it is, straight from the corpse’s mouth. A warm wry take on the journey from cradle to grave, through love and loss and all that death brings in its wake. This piece brings us up close and personal and asks some of the big questions: How do we deal with death when it comes to the door?What binds us together, what tears us apart?
“A startling, honest raw, warm piece. No shying away from death or grief, all the more amazing for that.” – Wendy
“Its all the things that grief is if we allow ourselves to feel it, heartfelt, amusing, irrational.” – Kate
