AND ... WE HAVE KICKSTARTED , PEOPLE!!!!!
Four days with TMK!! Acting workshops....
Two days with KK and Shoosha! Interpreting text and knowing how it would be to go on stage!!
Its been GRRREEAAATTTT till now :-)
The newbies in the workshop come from extremely varied backgrounds .... and age-groups too - we have people who have just finished writing their class ten board exams ( phew! time to chill!) to software professionals who unwind at the workshop after a tough day's work! Yes, we probably did bend the age-limit a little bit at both ends, but hey ! its turning out to be a lot of fun.... its really amazing how people who are over a decade apart in their ages get along so well to work as a team when it comes to theatre and getting comfortable with yourselves and with each other!
Exercises on body movement, body language, voice, understanding each other in a context other than "hi,my name is blah blah, i am from blah blah, so what do you do?" have been the major part of the content in the last six days !! At the end of the day, it's just awesome - knowing that you can actually do a whole lot of things you never thought you could do ... and knowing a lot more people much better .....And most importantly, what it actully takes to go on stage, and rOCK!!!
More about the workshop later!!!
thats all for now, folks!!!
