On Stage! (vol 2)
Our participants of the Jaffna workshop held their annual theater performance on the 3rd of August 2017 at the Kallayagam Auditorium Jaffna. A short drama and three dance items were presented by the children and were enjoyed by all who were present.
The very first theatrical performance by our participants in Mannar to the stage on the 4th of August, just one year after the start of the workshop. It was a proud and emotional moment for all as it was the first time a performance of this nature took place in the war torn city of Mannar.
