Teatro “Varadas”

“Women x Women” Theatre Series
08/03/2016
Auditorio, Instituto Cervantes a las 7:00 p.m. Performance in English.Queridos amigos,
Continuando con nuestro ciclo de representaciones teatrales “Mujer X Mujer“, en el que jóvenes directoras indias ponen en escena obras escritas por dramaturgas españolas o latinoamericanas, tenemos el placer de presentaros la obra deItziar Pascual, “Varadas”, a cargo de Juhi Jha. Varadas propone un mosaico de imágenes protagonizadas por las mujeres que han padecido el exilio. El espectáculo hace un recorrido en diez escenas a través de diversas situaciones propias de esta cruel experiencia, desde el comienzo de la marcha hasta el olvido histórico, mucho tiempo después: la obtención de un pasaporte para huir, la liquidación del patrimonio material y emocional, el miedo, la inseguridad, la angustia del viaje, el vacío tras la marcha, o la difícil inserción en el país de llegada. Ante nosotros está el retrato de demasiadas generaciones de mujeres del s. XX. (+)
Dear friends,
Following the “Women X Women” theatre series, in which young Indian women directors put on stage plays written by Spanish or Latin American women playwright, we have the pleasure to bring you Itziar Pascual‘s“Castaways”, directed by Juhi Jha. Itziar Pascual dedicates her play Castaways to “all those women in the twentieth century who sailed on the ships of the forgotten”. Through a series of ten short scenes between pairs of women of contrasting age and class, Pascual explores the theme of political exile and the struggle of living as social and cultural outcasts. Serious, engaging and provocative, Castaways attempts to give voice to the historically silenced. (+)

Auditorio, Instituto Cervantes a las 4:30 p.m.Cine: “Cría cuervos” de Carlos Saura
Las víctimas de ataques con ácido no sólo están desfiguradas de forma permanente, sino que además se ven obligadas a hacer frente a la carga emocional de ser parias en sus comunidades, viviendo a menudo una vida de soledad y abandono. Las niñas y mujeres que sufren estos ataques rara vez reciben protección y justicia; muy pocas reciben una compensación y la mayoría son incapaces de pagar las múltiples cirugías necesarias para recomponer sus rostros desfigurados. (+)Trailer 
Cine: “Breeding Crows” by Carlos Saura
Synopsis: Ana Torrent portrays the disturbed eight-year-old Ana, living in Madrid with her two sisters and mourning the death of her mother, whom she conjures as a ghost (an ethereal Geraldine Chaplin). Seamlessly shifting between fantasy and reality, the film subtly evokes both the complex feelings of childhood and the struggles of a nation emerging from the shadows.
With English subtitles. (+)

Entrada principal y Auditorio, Instituto Cervantes, a las 6:30 p.m.Exposición y documental: “Supervivientes al ácido”
Las víctimas de ataques con ácido no sólo están desfiguradas de forma permanente, sino que además se ven obligadas a hacer frente a la carga emocional de ser parias en sus comunidades, viviendo a menudo una vida de soledad y abandono. Las niñas y mujeres que sufren estos ataques rara vez reciben protección y justicia; muy pocas reciben una compensación y la mayoría son incapaces de pagar las múltiples cirugías necesarias para recomponer sus rostros desfigurados. (+)Exhibition and Documentary: “Acid Survivors” 
Victims of acid attacks are not only permanently disfigured, they are forced to deal with the emotional burden of being social outcasts in their communities, often living a life of solitude and neglect. The girls and women who suffer these attacks are seldom granted protection and justice under the law; very few receive compensation and most are unable to pay for the multiple surgeries needed to mend their disfigured faces. (+)

International Women’s Day   8 March 2016



Message of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon


As a boy growing up in post-war Korea, I remember asking about a tradition I observed: women going into labour would leave their shoes at the threshold and then look back in fear.  “They are wondering if they will ever step into those shoes again,” my mother explained.
More than a half-century later, the memory continues to haunt me.  In poor parts of the world today, women still risk death in the process of giving life.  Maternal mortality is one of many preventable perils.  All too often, female babies are subjected to genital mutilation.  Girls are attacked on their way to school.  Women’s bodies are used as battlefields in wars.  Widows are shunned and impoverished.
We can only address these problems by empowering women as agents of change. For more than nine years, I have put this philosophy into practice at the United Nations. We have shattered so many glass ceilings we created a carpet of shards. Now we are sweeping away the assumptions and bias of the past so women can advance across new frontiers.
I appointed the first-ever female Force Commander of United Nations troops and pushed women’s representation at the upper levels of our Organization to historic highs. Women are now leaders at the heart of peace and security — a realm that was once the exclusive province of men. When I arrived at the United Nations, there were no women leading our peace missions in the field. Now, nearly a quarter of all United Nations missions are headed by women — far from enough, but still a vast improvement.
I have signed nearly 150 letters of appointment to women in positions as Assistant Secretary-General or Under-Secretary-General. Some came from top Government offices with international renown, others have moved on to leadership positions in their home countries. All helped me prove how often a woman is the best person for a job.
To ensure that this very real progress is lasting, we have built a new framework that holds the entire United Nations system accountable. Where once gender equality was seen as a laudable idea, now it is a firm policy. Before, gender sensitivity training was optional; now it is mandatory for ever-greater numbers of United Nations staff. In the past, only a handful of United Nations budgets tracked resources for gender equality and women’s empowerment; now this is standard for nearly one in three, and counting.
Confucius taught that to put the world in order, we must begin in our own circles. Armed with proof of the value of women leaders at the United Nations, I have spoken out for women’s empowerment everywhere. In speeches at parliaments, universities and street rallies, in private talks with world leaders, in meetings with corporate executives and in tough conversations with powerful men ruling rigidly patriarchal societies, I have insisted on women’s equality and urged measures to achieve it.
When I took office, there were nine parliaments in the world with no women. We helped to drive that number down to four. I launched theUNiTE to End Violence against Womencampaign in 2008; today, scores of leaders and ministers, hundreds of parliamentarians and millions of individuals have added their names to the action call.  I was the first man to sign our HeForShe campaign, and more than a million others have joined since.  I stood with activists calling for the abandonment of female genital mutilation and celebrated when the General Assembly adopted its first-ever resolution supporting that goal.  I am echoing the calls of many who know women can drive success in achieving our bold 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and advancing the Paris Agreement on climate change.
On this International Women’s Day, I remain outraged by the denial of rights to women and girls — but I take heart from the people everywhere who act on the secure knowledge that women’s empowerment leads to society’s advancement. Let us devote solid funding, courageous advocacy and unbending political will to achieving gender equality around the world. There is no greater investment in our common future.

GLOBAL BABA’ TO UNFOLD THE TRUTH OF SPIRITUAL BABAS IN INDIA

In a country like India, people blindly follow the babas. With as many news of such self styled Godman being exposed by the media, people didn’t stop following them. These holyman continue to con people in the name of religion.
In a press conference held in Delhi, Abhimanyu Singh, Sandeepa Dhar, Producer Vijay Bansal and Priya Bansal promoted their upcoming film ‘Global Baba’.
The upcoming Hindi film ‘Global Baba’ will be dealing with a similar story of a Godman whose real face will be unveiled. Where Ramleela fame ‘Abhimanyu Singh’ will be playing the role of a Godman, ‘Sandeepa Dhar’ will be playing a role of a journalist who will expose the baba in the film.
Abhimanyu Singh who was last seen in the film ‘Ramleela’ as Ranveer’s elder brother when asked if he was mistaken as a real baba while shooting he said “Yes, my get up was such that most of the time people actually thought that I am a real baba. While we were shooting in Banaras, most of the people critized me while most of them came with joining hands and asked for my ashirwad”
Sandeepa Dhar too added “it’s pretty shocking that people follow these babas without any research or just because their parents or forefathers do”
“The goal of the film is basically to stop these fraudulent babas and gurus from conning people” she added
Vijay Bansal when asked If the film or any role will affect any other baba, he said ” We have not targeted any baba or religion. With the film we just want to open the eyes of audience”
The film is scheduled for a release on 11th March.
