The Grassrooted Trust will perform its highly-acclaimed series of monologues and skits under the theme – V Day – From The Cloud at the Aesthetic Resort in Colombo 7 on Friday 26 February.
V Day From The Cloud was initially performed in partnership with the Fairway Galle Literary Festival 2016, and travelled to Kandy, Galle and Jaffna, where the show received a great deal of interested and positive feedback from audiences.
The show explores the motivations and angst around cyber exploitation and violence. Listen to parents, educators, perpetrators and victims, and also those on the outside looking in who are trying to make sense of this phenomena.
