If you’re an aspiring actor who always wanted to play the role Draupadi in Mahabharatha or Hanuman in Ramayana and recite those long dialogues in Tamil along with the appropriate emotions, or a theatre artiste who wants to take your acting skills to the next level, a traditional folk theatre workshop that may help you nail those all of the above will be starting up on Monday.

“This is a workshop on Tamil theatre, but knowledge of Tamil is not a mandate to register,” clarifies Hemalatha Swaminathan, a creative art therapist from ‘4s Within’. She goes on, “There will be separate sessions for children and adults at GRT Grand and Bharat Kalachar respectively.” Children aged between seven and 14 can participate and for the adults, there are no age restrictions. Among the teachers for the workshop is Tamilarasi, a famous artiste from Kattai Kuttu who has conducted workshops in Switzerland and will teach the basics of acting, voice modulation, movement, percussion and demonstration.

Hema adds that as a bonus, the kids will also be taught to make props out of cardboard, such as armulets and crowns, to go with their drama experience. They will also perform at the end of every week at the venue itself.

To register and for more details, contact Hemalatha at 9381053134.
