Theatre for Change, Theatre for Society - Weekend Theatre Workshop by Asmita
Asmita Theatre Group organizes summer theatre workshop for all age groups on weekends. Its called - Theatre for Change, Theatre for Society (TCTS) as their aim is to promote theatre as a platform for creating awareness about social issues. I have been a theater lover for a long time, but TCTS was my first connection with a large set of theatre lovers, artists and experienced actors. Not only did I learn some important techniques and movements as the first step to learning acting, I performed, for the first time, in front of live audience in the form of a street play. I also made loads of friends with common interest in the field.
I would strongly recommend people who have any inclination towards acting, theatre or learning a new skill to participate in this workshop. This workshop is organised keeping in mind school students, college students and working professionals - hence the weekend timings in summers. This is a free workshop so you cannot use the "Funds Issue" as an excuse for this.
Not only will you learn something new, you will have a great time, and make good friends. I am not sure if I will be able to join this time but would definitely try.
This workshop coincides with Asmita's Summer Theatre Festival and the TCTS students are given a chance to prepare short street plays during the workshop (and after) to perform in front of live audience, just before the play.
