Every year, the Inventure community comes together to bring to the forefront causes which they feel passionately about and work towards accomplishing change. This has also been the focus of their annual school musical productions, and issues include exploring the purpose of education, child safety & protection, traffic, clean water and reviving Bangalore’s lake ecosystem have all been brought to the forefront.
In the play this year, ‘Every Inch Upstream’, is about many things, but at its core makes us question how the everyday stagnation that we survive in holds us back. It makes us realise that sometimes we need to let go of things that are holding us back, even if they are dear to us. If we really do want to challenge the status quo, why do we find ourselves taking the easy way out, always swimming Downstream? What brings about internal and external change?
The play chronicles the journey of self-realisation, reflecting that change is a constant and one has to work at it at different levels (personal, raising awareness and challenging the existing root of neglect and apathy) for it to be really effective.
In the play, we join five young teenagers on this journey of change, progress and transformation as they swim upstream. Complete with great music, some crazy dancing, a splash of courage and a bit of the unexpected, ‘Every Inch Upstream’ will entertain you, while provoking you to think about positive change!
