Sea View Room - Workshop on Theatre Direction

The director is the leader of a theatre team and also a leader of the creative theatrical process. The director is the visualiser and interpreter of dramatic text. He/she must have in depth knowledge of all theatre arts. Though he/she is the caption of the ship there are very rare training opportunities available to train and cultivate such directorial talent. That is the prime reason for organising a drama direction workshop for aspiring directors.
Waman Kendre, Director, Academy of Theatre Arts, Mumbai University, will conduct the workshop.

Well-known directors will contribute to this workshop as guest speakers. This workshop will be practice-oriented, and conclude with a presentation directed by participants.
