The Parrot's Training in the Jail University

Here are some glimpses of a mime theatre performance by inmate-learners in the Swaraj Jail University in Udaipur. The story is based on Rabindranath Tagore's The Parrot's Training. The Jail University is a place for inmates to explore their deeper passion and purpose. Thanks to Susanta Das (from Kolkata) for facilitating the 10 day Mime workshop and for directing the performance. Special thanks to facilitators Diken Patel, Indira Talreja, Manish Jain and Superintendent S. Shekhawatji and Rajkumar Yadav. Big thanks to Ravi Singh for shooting and editing this video.
