Spreading Mental Health awareness through performing arts
(15 September 2018)

 

Universal American School in Dubai presents, “Slumber Party Confessions” a joint production by Mad About Dance Studio and Woman2Woman. This dance & theatrical play, gives a platform for youngsters to share and discuss some hard-hitting issues with the support of music, dance and dialogues. The main characters in the play mirror the conflicts and struggles of youngsters, dealing with unrealistic beauty standards, peer pressure, loneliness, body image, attention from the opposite gender, depression and the immense influence of social media. The play addresses harsh realities and encourages open discussions and understanding by lightly using humour and dance in the backdrop.

Kalyan Chakravarthy – Creative Head of KC 24 & Director of SPC explains, “The actors have been training for two months on the play, all the actors are first timers to the stage and they bring so much character and depth; that I advice audiences to carry handkerchiefs along, there will be times you will cry laughing and there will be times when your eyes will moisten because you will see a bit of yourself in all the actors.”

Mahima Mehta – Founder of MAD & Producer of SPC says, “We have worked hard to ensure that the play is relatable to teens, the script on its own is brilliant and truly voices the harsh realties of growing up a millennial. To lighten up the mood and at times to add emotions to certain sentiment, we have choreographed songs along with the pulse of the play, the music and the dialogues work hand in hand to make a point!”

To encourage families to come, there are no tickets to the event, its completely FREE to enter, the venue is Universal American School at Dubai Festival City, the doors open at 5:30pm and the play starts sharp at 6:00pm on Friday 28th of September.
