QTP Workshops


IT’S BACK!!! 1 Year after our last workshop, we are conducting our one week intensive acting workshop called ‘ACTOR’S INTENSIVE’.

The workshop will cover:

1) Voice work and body language

2) Major acting styles like the method, commedia, etc

3) Scoping out emotions, expressions and getting into character.

4) Playing of a text & character

The workshop will culminate into a short dramatisation on the final day to be performed for friends of the group.

The entire course is designed as a workshop and there is virtually no sitting at a desk.

The emphasis is that the actors must do, so the group is treated like a theatre troupe and all topics are covered as though they were rehearsals and improvisations.

Timings : 10am to 6pm.

Date : 4 to 11 July 2010

Charges : Rs 10,000/-

(special discounts for former QTP workshop students)

As some of you maybe aware, QTP and Arts In Motion have been running a weekend workshop programme for most of 2010. However for the next batch, there will be a slight difference. This will be a PERFORMANCE BATCH. WOrkshop participants will get to perform at St. Andrew's on the 24th of July as part of the annual Arts in Motion performance day. Most aspects of the workshop will be similar, except for the second half of the workshop, we will be focussing on getting a short piece ready for the performance day.

The program will begin Sat 3rd July and will be held for a duration of 3 weeks, (8 sessions) every Saturday & Sunday. Participants must be over 15 years of age. No prior experience or background in theatre is required.

All participants will receive a completion certificate at the end of the workshop and also automatically get onto our database which will be offered to other theatre groups and off beat film makers.

Registrations open!!! Please call 9820183231 for further information.
