On the occasion of International Children’s Day, ASSET is organizing a special theatre performance for children with the collaboration of Tehrik-e-Niswan on Saturday, December 7, 2013.
Theme of the Theatre
Larna Jhagarna Theek Nahi
This event has been designed to ensure a stimulating experience for all the participants. After theatre performance the participants would be given an opportunity to reflect and express their views about the issues which would be highlighted in the play.
About Tehrik-e-Niswan
Tehrik-e-Niswan (The Women’s Movement) was officially formed in 1979 with the objective to create awareness about women’s rights and to change moral, social, patriarchal attitudes towards women through the medium of the performing arts. 
Tehrik-e-Niswan has played a pioneering role in introducing feminist political theatre and dance in Pakistan. Its plays and performances speak to a range of social issues. In the past thirty years Tehrik-e-Niswan Cultural Action Group has acquired national and international recognition as one of the major cultural group in Pakistan that has consistently struggled in the social, political and cultural arena to defend rights of ordinary Pakistanis to live in a society free of all kinds of exploitation and oppression. The Tehrik Company has performed in many dance and theatre festivals locally and abroad and many of the plays and dance productions have been land marks in the history of performing arts in Pakistan.
