On July 19th, a remarkable Drama Fest was held at KFI, where numerous schools participated to showcase their talents and creativity on the theme of social issues. The fest aimed to raise awareness and address pressing concerns faced by society. The TI crew of 25 participants from class XI and XII focused on relevant social issues: drug addiction, toxic parenting, and self-validation, all of which deeply resonate with the present generation.
‘Threads of Resilience’ was the title for the presentation. It revolved around emphasizing the importance of resilience in overcoming life's challenges, particularly when dealing with the social issues we had chosen. Our skit unfolded a compelling story that brought these issues to light, leaving a profound impact on the audience.
The performance commenced, and our actors delivered their roles with passion and conviction. The narrative portrayed the struggles faced by individuals affected by drug addiction, the detrimental effects of toxic parenting on young minds, and the pursuit of self-validation in today's fast-paced and competitive world.
Following the performance, a panel discussion was organized. We were invited to share insights into the title, creative process, and the talented cast. The discussion was handled by our team, and they eloquently elaborated on how they researched and empathized with the issues to portray them authentically on stage. The audience appreciated the efforts made by our team to tackle such sensitive topics with grace and sensitivity.
The Drama Fest was a resounding success. It not only showcased the artistic abilities of the participating schools but also highlighted the power of theatre as a medium to address crucial social issues. Each performance brought a unique perspective, which further enriched the experience for everyone present.
The day was filled with emotions and pride. Seeing our team's hard work and dedication culminate in a powerful skit and panel discussion was truly gratifying.
Overall, the Drama Fest at KFI was an exceptional event, bringing together schools, students, and teachers to shed light on social issues through the art of drama. ‘Threads of Resilience", contributed to the meaningful discourse and will be cherished as a significant milestone in our school's journey towards promoting awareness and change in society. - Shilpa.S
