Kerima is a storyteller, teacher and campaigner for social and environmental justice.
She currently works for a small charity that works in solidarity with communities around the world who are threatened by mining. She also has many years’ experience of working with schools to create materials to raise awareness and stimulate discussion about colonialism, the environment, racism and women`s rights.
Kerima will be sharing one of India`s great and widely known epic tales, The Ramayana.
The Dandaka Forest in Eastern India is the setting for the Ramayana. Today the Dandaka forest is again the site of bitter struggle.
This lively interweaving of a contemporary real life story with a feminist re-telling of a traditional myth is performed in honour of the courage of the women and men on the frontlines of a struggle to protect a forest which is in danger of becoming a place that will only exist in a story.
