TO DREAM is a theatre workshop for children - inspired by Shakespeares A Midsummer Nights Dream - designed to understand the power of dreaming and the imagination in finding release from the oppression and pressures of everyday life.
At some time or the other, we all need to find a forest in our dreams, to escape from this oppression into a place where all is equal rights and we can work through our problems and make sense of the world.
We learn to make choices and develop a contrast between the pressures of our urban lives and the freedoms of the forest through a sequence of activities which will help participants understand this contrast and relate these ideas to their own lives.
PLEASE NOTE: Participants are required to bring a box full of bric-a-brac from home, including old clothes, which they take back after the workshop. Those who wish to create art may bring art materials of their choice as long as they clean up afterward.
Age range: 9-13 years
Duration: 4 hours(incl 15min break)
Full rate: Rs 1500
Same Family Package (for 2): Rs 2600/-
TO DREAM explores the following THEMES:
LOVE - The difficulty of making relationships work.
ORDER AND DISORDER - The need for a balance between the rational and irrational, between rules and magic, in the interests of love, harmony, and creativity
APPEARANCE AND REALITY - How people and events are often not as they seem.
CREATIVE IMAGINATION - Its reliance on the unconscious, the magical, the mysterious.
NATURE - representing the magical world of the forest
THE MOON - reflecting the change, disruption, and unpredictability, romance, the magical and mysterious, a journey.
SLEEP AND DREAMS - which take us to mysterious places, are states of innocence and vulnerability, cause confusion and the blurring of boundaries between fantasy and reality.
EYES - as emblems of perception and perspective, as entryways to the heart, windows on the soul
PLAYS /REHEARSALS - as symbols of magical transformation; of experimentation and preparation;
MAGIC - as representing the unseen, the unpredictable, the irrational and inexplicable.
The journey is all about experiencing real and powerful human emotions while traveling through the realms of a dream.
This world exists only in our imagination but the idea of the power of magic is based on ancient myth and these two sensibilities will come together as human emotions are felt and played out.
