Thespo 16: Day 3, 17th December 2014Posted on 20th Dec 2014
We're now three days into the festival & if you haven't Plugged into the Tamasha yet, it's about time you did!
Here's a recap of Today's events:
Josephine Joy's workshop "Out of the box" - Staying true to the name of the workshop, Josephine's workshop quite literally was "Out of the box" as one of the exercises saw the participants occupying the prithvi foyer and improvising small acts in groups. The workshop gave an extremely energetic start to the day!
Kaizad Gherda's workshop "Understanding Music for Theatre" - Music is considered to be an essential part of any performing art, and we are grateful to Mr. Kaizad Gherda for teaching the tricks of the trade to the younger generation so that they can enhance their performance!
Meera Shenoy's Band Performance: The Tamasha became musical with Meera Shenoy's absolutely mistyfying performance. She enchanted the crowd at Prithvi foyer and left them begging for more!
Allianse Francaise Movie screening (Fringe): This French Docu-Drama was an highly inspiring for every one at Thespo! The film recounts Ariane Mnouchkine’s iconic artistic journey: her inspirations, her dreams for the theatre, her love of cinema, her unique and extraordinary bond with audiences. Extensive archival material – much of which has never been seen before – together with extracts from performances and rehearsals, as well as interviews and coverage of various tours and travels, reveal an in-depth portrait of theThéâtre du Soleil, and its artistic and political commitment both in France and internationally, for which it was awarded the International Ibsen Award in September 2009.
Gillian Clark's Platform Performance - Understudy: After her eye opening performance at the Fringe just yesterday, Gillian Clark gave another amazing spectacle with her Platform Performance earlier today "Understudy" - A one-act comedy about a nine year old boy named Dylan who is on his own little journey of self acceptance.
Tomar Dake - Play: A visually stunning experience and an extremely necessary play in present times. Tomar Dake is a play inspire by the infamous Nobel Laureate, Malala Yousufzai. It portrayed the social injustice and violence in north and west Asian countries and shook the audience to its very core!
Thespo 16 will be back tomorrow with tons of more Tamasha!
