Ajoka Theatre adapts to social media for online classes in Pakistan

Ajoka Theatre

The coronavirus pandemic and lockdown has badly affected our ability for live interaction with our audience and our training courses (in acting, writing, anchoring etc). We have always highlighted our cultural and artistic heritage through our performances.

We have now started exploring the potential of social media for online classes, performances and festivals. The response so far has been very good, even surprising.

However adapting to social media for an ancient community-oriented performing art is quite a challenge. We are currently holding a “Coronlogue Online Theatre Festival “(in May 2020) and will plan our future strategy accordingly. We started a new online acting course and the enrolment is even higher than our regular courses.
