There has been lots of interest from amateurs as well as media professionals in the workshop!
So the good news is, we are throwing it open to anyone who’s interested – actors, writers, directors, designers and of course, amateurs who want some art in their lives. It promises to be a most interesting mix!
We are also revising the timings of the workshop, based on many requests. Kindly note –
Starting: Tuesday 24th July, ending 16th August.
Days: Tuesdays and Thursdays
Another oft-asked question is about the methodology and takeaways. And why storytelling?
We all have stories to tell, be it in any walk of life. The most obvious example of this is in the media. But our corporate, professional and personal lives have a lot of invisible storytelling too! And it’s a select few who do this storytelling well.
An overview of the workshop –
– Examining the basic elements of communicating effectively, be it verbally or on paper. What do you want to ‘say’ and how to go about it?
– Structuring ideas, thoughts and emotions for effective communication.
– Understanding the power of language as a tool of communication – written or spoken.
– Understanding the above in real-time experimentation and interaction with others on the workshop floor, as opposed to theory.
– A wide array of texts as worskhop material ensures diversity and challenge – prose, poetry, short stories, even articles and essays.
– Examining our comfort zones – we learn most when what we take for granted is gently questioned, in a safe and trustworthy environment.
– Plain fun!
There is much to be gained from focused interaction with people from different walks of life, and this theatre workshop does exactly that. For, quite literally, everyone has a story to tell…and everyone’s listening!
And…if things go well, all this may culminate in a performance in an intimate space for an invited audience. For ultimately, the play’s the thing!
