a global media environment, increasingly dominated by the electronic
forms, theatre as a medium of communication is faced with a dwindling
audience and perhaps, even lesser appreciation. Theatre that Matters
was started as a small, but sincere effort by CDL to showcase
the power of theatre for social change. In this programme, CDL
facilitates, supports and provides solidarity to theatre groups
who share a mutual spirit of promoting meaningful theatre.
Presented under the brand of 'Theatre that Matters', titles
and troupes are carefully selected to invite productions where
the power of the medium has been used to communicate issues of
contemporary relevance. The troupe is then invited to perform
and showcase, both the medium of theatre as well as the potential
to use the medium in a positive manner for social change.....
