Smallholder farmers of Badampet village in Telangana, India, like thousands across the country, have lost control over their resources and food, resulting in crippling debt and suicide amongst people in rural areas.

During the final months of 2017 twenty farmers from Badampet village, cutting across diverse ages, genders castes, communities and religions worked together to devise a play depicting their crisis.

The theatre performed in the village, created a space for dialogue that is already bearing fruit, with farmers envisioning collective ways to regain control of their land, food and lives. Families who have felt isolated in their struggles for too long, are recognising the power of collective action.

Performances in more villages, is crucial for widening this dialogue amongst farmers, towards changing  their lives. Your support will make this possible.
