THEATRE FOR EVERYONE
What is Theatre?
(Theatre is a collaborative form of fine art that uses live performers, typically actors, to present the experience of a real or imagined event before a live audience in a specific place, often a stage. The performers may communicate this experience to the audience through combinations of gesture, speech, song, music, and dance. Elements of art, such as painted scenery and lighting are used to enhance the physicality, presence and immediacy of the experience. )
This is the Dictionary definition of the word Theatre!
In everyday world, Theatre is nothing but REPRESENTATION OF LIFE!
What is the role of Theatre in our lives?
Now, take a close look at your life – Make your workplace, your home, places you go, modes of travel you use and things you see as your Theatre Stage. And make people you meet, interact as your co-actors and you are the lead actor of your life. We all are playing our parts, doing our roles in the best of our abilities. We share different emotions with each other, express ourselves or not express, pretend, hate, care, love, share, live and feel & so on. If we put a CCTV camera on us 24×7 then we also have an audience!!! J Who says we need to be professional actors to be a part of or learn ‘Theatre’? We all are great actors, scriptwriters & directors at all times in our real lives. The difference is now we shall do the same consciously.
Theatre, Acting, Improvisation, Meditation, Cinema, Drama, Music…..are all related to each other. They all are Sa-Re-Ga-Ma-Pa-Dha-Ni-Sa when joined together. We all are connected to them very deeply. You need not be an artist to be connected to them. You can be anyone professionally – Doctor, Engineer, CA, MBA, Photographer, Analyst, Student, Homemaker, Musician……Anyone. IF YOU HAVE FEELINGS, THEN IT’S FOR YOU!
Why should people who are non-actors by profession resort to Theatre?
We normally see Theatre as Play or Role Plays. That’s not complete. Theatre is Us, what we feel, what we express, what we say, what we don’t say, our relations, our mental & emotional process, our actions, our behavior….everything we see, feel and hear around us comes under the purview of Theatre. Everything!
