Every individual has their own unique style of carrying their body or playing expressions.It is very important to train actors helping them retain their own style and originality.At Swatantra Theatre we will have a mixed blend of practical and theoritical knowledge of acting and its techniques.
Director & Trainer Abhijeet Choudhary says
This Theatre program is not just a mere training of techniques.We will start with basic regional form of theatre/acting and art popularly known as folk art. Every artist must know the folk theatre where we inculcate our traditionaland culture form, because India presents a colourful assortment of folk theatre like Nautanki, tamasha, jatra, yakshagana,this helps immensely since the actors frequently converse with the audience in the course of the play.The stage is often a huge empty space where actors deftly manipulate with their dialogues and gestures.Loud music, dance, elaborated use of make up, masks and singing chorus are its hallmarks.These kind of plays provide a valuable insight into the local dialect, dress, attitude, humour, and wit of the regions.
All this can give a deep insight and broaden a way of looking to the form of acting.It can prove a strong base.
Adding to this we have designed the workshop to cover the following different aspects of learning Acting.
Method Acting to Character Acting
Melodramatic Acting to Settle Acting
Stage Acting to Film Acting
Nautanki Art Form to Modern Art forms
Exprimentation techniques to Professional techniques
Along with that; sessions on Natyashastra, Method Acting forms will also be conducted.
Work extensively on:
Voice Culture Development, Acting Skills, Body Language
Exercise sessions on various body exercises and voice exercises
Acting involves two forms of communication intrascenic (communication between characters) and extrascenic (communication between the characters and the audience) aspects of both the forms ofcommunication will be a major workout here.
Aspirants can explore both the forms of acting with understanding the basic to advanced techniques.
Abhijeet Choudhary will conduct sessions on the line expressing text by techniques of stage and body work.
Dhanashree Heblikar will develop new ways how to apply the principals of on stage to the work with text using each dialogue as a weapon.
