Sutradhar School of Acting, in association with Sutradhar Casting Agency (P) Limited, is organizing Pratibimb 2K7 (The Reflection), a 2-month acting workshop for theater, television and films, from 12th April. The workshop is conducted 5 days a week from 8am to 110am in the mornings, at 3-6-145/9/1/1, Himayatnagar. People between 15 and 60 years of age are eligible for enrolment.
The workshop is open for corporate employees, students, budding artistes, housewives, and anyone else who would want to take up acting, anchoring or video jockeying as an avocation or even as a profession. There is no formal qualification required, except that the prospective participant should have good communication skills in Hindi, English and Telugu.
The admission will not be on first-come-first-served basis, but on the basis of an informal, invisible test. Body language, gestures, postures, mime, observation and imagination exercises, voice and speech exercises, emotion and sense memory, characterization, improvisation etc. will form part of the workshop.
At the workshop, participants are groomed to become theater persons, which is why the workshop culminates in a theater production on 9th June, by the participants. Here all the aspects of a play, like choosing/writing a script, direction, production execution, stage management, casting, set designing, costume designing, lights designing, music, make-up and of course acting will be handled by the participants themselves under the supervision of the Resource Personnel.
Since media acting also forms a part of the curriculum, there will be emphasis on the difference between acting on stage and acting before the camera.
Prof. Bhaskar Shewalkar and Vinay Varma will be taking up the classes. On completion of the workshop, the company will register the participants in its database and share their details with the media, including film, TV, documentary and ad filmmakers.
The Sutradhar agency started training in the year 1999, and since then has churned out about 45 actors, many of whom have made a mark in their fields of media. The fee for the whole of the workshop is fixed at Rs. 10,000 per participant.
