9. How To Build A Theatre Performance

WhereInsider.in

Conducted by Atul Kumar

Part of the Jairangam Festival

A theatre performance can be created in absolutely any space and based on absolutely any subject. Traditionally it required a live actor to perform in a live space and a live audience to witness the act. Presently, the paradigms of what a performance could be, have changed. In this workshop we will explore how we can create out of improvisations and concepts a performance out of absolutely anything at all. We shall also explore how lack or surplus of resources, skill sets and experience does not and must not stand in the way of creating and performing theatre. What is urgent and immediate to artists must be realized at any cost.
