KARACHI: Under the banner of ‘I am Karachi’, the theatre and musical fraternities are going to celebrate the ‘International Theatre Day’ on March 27.

This was announced by National Academy of Performing Arts representative Zain Ahmed at a media briefing which was arranged by the theatre and music group of the ‘I am Karachi’ campaign at Karachi Youth Support Network on Thursday.

According to Ahmed, we can only solve our problems if we stay united. He declared the month of March ‘theatre month’ since a lot of theatrical performances are lined up at Arts Council.

Institute of Business Administration social sciences department head Dr Framji Minwalla briefed the media about how theatre and music performances are useful for communication. “Strong messages of love and hate had always spread through this medium,” he said.

He also talked about the importance of youth in any movement. “We welcome the youth to join us in this struggle.”
