We come to the east of India with our Foundation Skills in Acting Workshop in Siliguri.

This April, The Drama School, Mumbai faces the East, heading to West Bengal with our Foundation Skills in Acting workshop. These workshops are designed to build on the core areas of acting such as movement, voice, and the development of performance through text.

Our first workshop in Siliguri will see our facilitator Naireet Basak approaching these core areas through his extensive training in movement. Bringing the dedication, focus, and rigor of The Drama School, Mumbai to Siliguri, this workshop we hope marks the beginning of a trend.

The workshop demands a high level of commitment, focus and energy from the participant and we take pride in keeping focus on individual attention and development through training.

The workshop is open to any and all participants irrespective of language, age, profession.

So if you’re looking to understand the craft of acting or want to go back to the basics and hone your skills, APPLY NOW!

Keep calm & #ashtag @The Drama School, Mumbai

The Drama School, Mumbai is proud to invite you for a special performance this Saturday!
The Young People’s Theatre Programme focuses on making drama accessible to students, and is the drama education wing of Theatre Professionals, our parent company. This year, we’re proud to present a devised production called Keep calm & #astag conceptualised by the Young people’s Theatre Programme, and commissioned by Max Mueller Bhavan/Goethe Institut, Mumbai

About Keep Calm and #ashtag:

Cyber space becomes a new public space in which gender plays itself out: Why does Nikhil play an online game as a female avatar? Why does Tanya create an anonymous Facebook profile and what does she do with it? What happens when Sachin’s fighting video goes viral? The play looks at the collisions of real and virtual spaces and the drama that unfolds.

The absurd, funny and sometimes painful episodes connect through hyperlinks to a fast-paced ride into the violence of gender construction in teenage years. The play seeks to provoke a healthy dialogue around the complexities that young people face in defining who they are as men and women, and the ways in which they navigate real and cyberspace in their everyday lives.

More details about the play can be found here.

Age suitability: 14 years and above

Duration: 50 minutes

Please note that the performance will be followed by a post-show discussion with the the audience and actors.

Date:

Saturday 14th March 2015 at 5.00 p.m.

Venue:
Mumbai Marathi Sahitya Sangh,
5th floor, Purandare Hall, Kele Wadi,
