11 January 2012: Public showing of ‘Prakriti Prem’, a street drama

The Mandapika Art Group restaged the street drama ’Prakriti Prem’ for the public at Ratna Park in Kathmandu on 11 January, following the good reviews from the audience when it was staged at ICIMOD Headquarters in December 2011 in celebration of International Mountain Day. The street drama was well appreciated by the crowd of more than 500 people and received press coverage in a national daily the following day. A video documentation of the drama has been prepared with subtitles in English and German. Spot interviews and feedback from the audience have also been included. Limited copies of the video will soon be available and the video will also be posted on ICIMOD's YouTube channel. The Mandapika Art Group received support from ICIMOD’s Asia Pacific Mountain Network (APMN) project under the framework of the World Mountain Forum for Sustainable Development (WMF-for-SD), which is implemented jointly by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), ICIMOD, and other global partners.
