Kalki Koechlin talks about Theatre Professionals

“The chance to work with the likes of Anamika Haksar Sankar Venkateswaran would never have been possible if it weren’t for Theatre Professionals. I cannot think of any other theatre centric teaching facility in the city that is as consistent and reliable in terms of professional practitioners and quality of work.

The workshops and especially IDP helped me keep in touch with the craft and sharpen my tools as an actor. In a busy city we often forget the value of Riyaaz, of keeping the body in regular practice, and Theatre Professionals gave me the chance to do that.I also feel there is an immediate need for a theatre school in Mumbai, as most of our acting schools only focus on Bollywood and film and look forward to Theatre Professionals evolving into the kind of drama school that trains actors for the stage.”

Every time I’ve done a workshop with Theatre Professionals, I have always learnt, improved and evolved as an actor. The idea of a theatre school sounds really exciting. Coming from Jehan and his talented team, one can expect a kind of training that will take any actor a long way. I think a school like this in Mumbai is good news for all aspiring and professional actors in the city. Wishing Jehan and team lots of luck and good wishes.

Theatre in Bombay has gone through many phases. Each phase building upon the last. The Chabbildas Movement, Prithvi, Thespo are all chapters in the city’s theatre landscape. The work the TPPL is doing looks certain to be the next BIG phase for Bombay theatre. For too many years, groups and directors have had to ‘invent it as they go along’. With a proper training programme and drama school, TPPL is serving the community at large by creating prepared actors. This will not only lift the level of work, but free creators to spend less time ‘teaching’ and more time building shows in rehearsal.
Today a career as an actor, and particularly a theatre actor is no longer an oddity. It is a viable option for scores of young enthusiasts. The proper training will equip them with the tools to be ready for that first audition or rehearsal.
I think the Drama School is a necessity in today’s cultural landscape. I wish it all the best. And wait eagerly to work with the graduates of the first batch.
