PBL7 Field visit to Mandala Theatre

A field visit to Mandala Theatre was conducted on 3rd February with the students of PBL7. All ten students and three staff participated in the visit. The main objective of the visit was to provide exposure and allow the students to witness the power of creativity and collaboration through theatre.

As soon as we entered the room, the first thing we saw was a red beaming light through the team of five artists in action. The act started with warm greetings from the host and words full of appreciation to the audience. As the act unfolded, the students realised why the theatre was called “ Maasinya’’, as it showcased the epitome of pain that the Tamang community of Nepal has been bearing for more than a century. The students laughed out loud and even wept during some scenes. The act had an unhappy ending that left all the students feeling sad. However, their spirits were quickly lifted as the director of the act, a popular comedian actor of Nepal, agreed to take pictures with them. All the students were overjoyed with the experience as it was their first visit to a theatre, and meeting their favourite celebrity was like a cherry on top.

Amics del Nepal looks forward to conducting different field visits in each quarter to enable students mobilisation of knowledge exchange, social awareness, and community engagement.

This project is possible thanks to the support of all the members of Amics del Nepal and the collaborating partners:
