NCBS Residency and Plays

In January 2009, Theatrescience returned to India, with the help of an International Public Engagement Award from the Wellcome Trust for a five-week residency at the National Centre for Biological Sciences (NCBS).

The residency included a wide range of contributions from scientists, clinicians, directors, actors and writers.  It resulted in the development of two new plays: ‘The Clearing’ by Gautam Raja, about the public health issues involved in forest ecology, and ‘Amol’s Stories’, which explores Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and memory.

Extracts from this work were presented at the British Science Association Conference in London in June 2009, and ‘The Clearing’ is being staged at the Alliance Francais, Bangalore in June 2010.
