Sangeet Natak Academy Awardee – ace kathakali dancer and theatre artist Maya Krishan Rao who is most well known for solo acts says that theatre is nothing about rehearsals.
Rao is currently conducting a workshop under ‘Design Polygon’ at Pearl Academy that is aimed at developing a reflective consciousness of the self awareness and it will also talk about gender sensitization through various acts making students understand its importance.
Maya, who also promotes drama as a method of teaching in itself, praised the enthusiasm and interest of Pearlites during the workshop. They have been exposed to various basic elements of theatre such as tension, attention, spontaneity & expressions. Many more of such elements will be covered in the workshop in 3 days to come.
“The students here are being exposed to random situations that motivate them to strike a spontaneous dialogue that compliments with the elements of acting and successfully converts into a theatre performance,” says Maya.
Pearlites also enjoyed their every single practice and act during the workshops.
