V Day 2019: Colombo 7

30 March 2019 Posted by No Comment

V Day 2019: Colombo 07, like previous years, is based on interviews, discussions, conversations, and news coverage on the varied manifestations of gender-based and intimate partner violence in Sri Lanka.

Following previous productions, among the feedback was that we should “take this message to the village”. So, this year, we do just that by focusing on the hamlet of Colombo 07, to underpin that emotional, physical, and sexual violence is not limited to rural and provincial mindsets. Our gendered notions in Sri Lanka, which often lead to violence, are well established in most curious places.

Come join us to laugh at how ridiculous we can be.

V Day 2019: Colombo 07 will go on boards at Idea Hell, Colombo 3 on Sunday, 31st of March at 7pm.

Tickets are priced at LKR 1500, with 50% off for studentsavailable at the Barefoot Gallery and online via 444.lk (LINK – https://www.444.lk/events/v-day-2019-303# )
