Plans are well on the way for the Applied Theatre students to venture to Lilongwe, Malawi in May 2012 for their Theatre for Development module and the culminationhttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif of their training on their course at St. Mary's.
This year, we are planning staying longer and participate in more activities. Our main point of contact will still be the work with Theatre for a Change including working in schools, teacher training colleges and in the community with sex workers.
This year, we also plan to tour our show [working title, 'Gender Equality and Safer Sex'] which is based on stories from our students as well as interviews conducted with women from Positive East. We will tour to several teacher training colleges in and around Malawi.
We will be staying in the excellent backpackers, Mabuya Camp, the same place we stayed last year. It was a wonderful place for our students complete with a swimming pool, big screen television and swimming pool. Highly recommended for all visitors to Lilongwe.
