Clowns Without Borders Sweden and Red Nose Entertainment, Mumbai are presenting THAT'S HOW WE FEEL - a devised clown performance by 7 teenage girls, the Rednose Juniors, who grew up in the red light district of Mumbai.

It is an eye-opening theatre piece about the male gaze by seven girls hailing from Mumbai's red-light district, who have been training in theatre and clowning for the past 5 years.

The story, directed by Rupesh Tillu, revolves around the teenage girls living in the area, and how they feel when people stare at them. "The day we started our training, the girls wouldn't dare to look in our eyes while saying their names. And today, after 5 years of training, they are ready to be part of a professional clown show which will be performed in 10 small theatres around the city, and 20 shows for other NGOs and schools around Mumbai to inspire other children and open up a dialogue and discussion," elaborates Rupesh Tillu.

It is said that the proceeds coming from these shows will continue to go to the accounts of the Rednose Juniors, for their further education.
