Introduction

“Lord Byron’s Love Letter” is a short funny play by Tennessee Williams. A small group of Aurovilians performed this play, with two aims:

  1. To provide the participating Aurovilians in love with theater some acting tools, and the learning process of working directly on a short play, experiencing learning through funny and enjoyable activities.
  2. To bring theater and culture around the town.

Francesca, Jeff, Elke, Anandamay, and Rena acted in “Lord Byron’s Love Letter”. Several performances were given:

  • March 20, 8pm, Sacred Groves
  • March 21, 8pm, Le Zephyr
  • March 22, 5:30pm, Kalabhumi ampitheatre
  • Extra performance at Aurogreen

Reflections

It was a nice way to put the community together. Aurovilians still stop me on my way to tell me: Thank you!

Future direction

The intention is to go on with acting/learning activities with adults and kids. I (Francesca) am planning an Auroville kids theater festival which will involve all the primary schools. For the adults, I will continue with short plays.

Conclusion

The success was doing some acting activity which on the end involved the Auroville community. One lesson we took from the experience is: don’t go fast, don’t go big. Do small things, but do them at your best.
