 Come and meet fellow theatre educator's in this organic space that runs without a meta-facilitator. Everything we do is planned and curated by only the people in the room. That too, democratically.

We meet up on third Sunday every month, at 10:30 am at Shoonya - Centre for Art and Somatic Practices to just jam for 2 1/2 hours, run exercises, try out new things, and experience other's ideas and styles. 

Only 4 essential agreements:
-We start on time, end on time, and adhere to time (when running an excercise)
-It is a drama safe space.
-The people who are in the room are the right people - always! 
-Everyone participates throughout. 
We open with a ritual and agenda setting for half an hour

Agenda Setting:
We have three areas, tune ins (30 mins), engagements (50 Mins), reflection (1 Hour).
5 Min Water Breaks between each.
Participants can put down exercises on a chart paper on the wall (and time taken) that they would like to try under each category. 
The group collectively decides what the agenda is for the 2.5 hours and runs it. By just ticking the exercises they really want to do. 
Reflection exercises should allow us to reflect on what we experienced that day. 
The rest is chai, charcha, discussions, around theatre projects, workshop projects, education projects, general sharing, inviting, and other kinds of fun that you would love to have with such like minded souls as yours. 

We would love to see you there, as we know you love this work, and we know all of us have so much to learn from each other - always.

We all are half done, we all are incomplete. Mohan Rakesh's Aadhe Adhure is what true theatre is. It is pure drama written with a very nuanced and methodical understandings of human psyche. It repeatedly draws often the theme of our expectations and reality. Are we happy with what we have? Can we ever be happy? What is happiness?

In Aadhe Adhure, Mohan Rakesh takes an ordinary family where the family relationships are already crumbling. The wife is the only earning member in a family of 5, the husband has lost all his self-confidence. The elder daughter eloped and married but is still struggling to find happiness, her younger brother has reached of age but yet to find a job and the youngest teenager has coming of age problems coupled with a need to get attention. The wife is tired of taking care of everyone and has her own desires and ambitions.

Rakesh wastes no time in setting up the tension, but he never lets go off it. This is a story where everyone is at fault and yet no-one is. Rakesh unfolds the story brilliantly and his command over his audience is splendid.

TOYO - Theatre on your own, uses minimal props to render the story. At some points, it feels mere a dramatic reading of the play yet the actors render their roles with a gloom that stays with you even after the play gets over. There is also a minimal use of shadow effects yet it adds exponential flavoring.

Aadhe Adhure is a must watch play. You can take your parents to this one and it will be a discussion point for the way back home.
