India | Nirbhaya play tours to Mumbai, Delhi, Bengaluru

nirbhaya Nirbhaya: Breaking The Silence:  the acclaimed play, based on the performers' real life experiences, and the events  that shocked Delhi and the world, now comes to India after its powerful opening at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.  It is performing in Mumbai, New Delhi and Bengaluru between 17-28 March. NIRBHAYA premiered at the prestigious Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the largest arts festival in the world, in August 2013. It won the coveted Amnesty International Freedom of Expression Award given to an outstanding Fringe production which raises awareness of human rights. It also won the Scotsman Fringe First and the Herald Angel Award for Outstanding New Play. A dramatic performance based upon a true incident. On the night of December 16 2012 a young woman and her male friend boarded a bus in urban Delhi heading for home. What followed changed the lives of these two people and countless others forever. Internationally acclaimed playwright and director Yael Farber creates a searing new work that cracks open the silence around women whose lives have been shattered by gender-based violence. The production is by the team based at the UK's Assembly and Riverside Studios. It was presented earlier in March at London's South Bank Centre as part of the Women of the World Festival.
