The participants of an acting workshop organized by the Sutradhar School Of Acting are staging the play, Rome No. 13, Block No. 14. The play, written originally in Marathi as Aaliya Bhogasi, by Srikant Sinka, was translated in Hindi by Anant Kulkarni.
The specialty of this play is that it is not dialogue-oriented. Each character is lost in his own world. Also there are no cues, so in a way it is an insane play, by insane actors, for 'sane' people. This aspect of performance is the most difficult part, because in a 'normal' play the actors take cues and as a result of which, energies from their co-actors. But in this case, each actor has to maintain his alacrity, and show amazing sense of timing.
All this is the culmination of a nine-week long intensive, comprehensive training, which covered all dimensions of acting. Physical fitness, mental toughness, voice-projection, building team spirit, sense and emotion memory, and theater games were some of the many aspects in this training. In brief, the emphasis was on coordination of Body, Mind and Voice – three most important requirements for an actor. Prof. Bhaskar Shewalkar and Vinay Varma were the directors for the workshop.
Rome No. 13, Block No. 14 will be staged on the 11th of June and entry for the play is by donation, fixed at Rs.30.
