The Kutumb Foundation has conducted school intervention programming in a series of government schools, in Delhi and Noida, since 2014. We started conducting drama-in-education classes in underserved village schools in Noida since 2018. Our sessions have explored the family and community’s relationship to the environment through dramatic conventions. The foundational literacy skills outlined in NIPUN Bharat, make drama uniquely positioned — as a holistic, play focused, discovery oriented, activity-based pedagogy, to address foundational literacy with primary school children, and to do so in such a way as to affect broader socio-emotional development. Our sessions have explored the family and community’s relationship to the environment through dramatic conventions and theatre. Students also create plays on these themes, and videos are created highlighting their work. Drama-in-education serves as a profoundly effective tool to challenge power-dynamics, in particular those of patriarchy and inequitable gender relations, and is premised on problem posing rather than rote learning.
