Overview

The movie theatre industry in India has undergone a significant transformation, right from small rolling-image boxes on streets to mobile-theatres in villages and towns to a single-screen and finally ruling multiplexes across the length and breadth of the country.

Currently, since the world is undergoing a pandemic the scope for various industries have changed drastically. Therefore it becomes very crucial to get insights about every respective industry from the industry leaders, people who have burned their hands working hard in the industry because as the saying goes,

“ The burned hand teaches best, after that advice of the fire goes to the heart”

With us today we have ____ who has been involved in the theatre industry from the age of 12 and has an experience of 35 years in the theatre industry. Through all the ups and downs the passion for theatre drama has always stuck by him and as he speaks we can see how theatre brings a spark in his eyes.

Highlights

● How has theatre inspired people from different walks of life (6:03 – 8:30)

➔ Theatre has always been a place where one can showcase their talent, it is a medium through which one can portray their skill and passion for acting. Theatre has always been a platform where one can share their life’s experiences. But theatre often gets associated with acting, although acting is not the sole area of the theatre industry.

● Different scopes and areas where newcomers can step in if theatre is something that interests them. (12:46 – 18:05)

➔ Throughout my whole career, I have interacted with people from different walks of life, be it children, teens or adults. Whosoever that I have interacted with I have always asked them to make sure that they pursue their education, if they are earning, I’ve always suggested that they continue their job.

Life has become very fast nowadays, everyone wants to be quick at whatever they’re doing. People come to join theatre to learn acting and get into bollywood. I suggest every newcomer to join theatre as a side passion and if their passion grows for theatre art, and if they get positive feedback from others regarding their work, then maybe they can move forward with theatre or acting as a career.

● Apart from acting, what career roles does theatre provide? (21:02 – 23:45)

➔ Theatre is a diverse platform with different types of career opportunities, Theatre is associated with different types of designing, Costume designing, set designing, light design. Music is also a crucial part of theatre drama, movements and storyline creation team. Theatre is a very creative platform, people develop their interest and grow accordingly.

● What is the future of theatre in India? (30:14 – 34:06)

➔ Theatre has become diverse due to the involvement of technology nowadays, theatre teaches you the basics of creative and with upcoming technological advancements students are keen to act and perform. Although I always suggest my students to slow down and understand what theatre has given them.

Very Important point

● What income can one expect if they want to pursue theatre as their career choice (26:45 – 27:33)

➔ Although people emerge out as great actors from the theatre industry, the theatre industry does not provide a handsome amount of money which is something that is really important and I always point it out to youngsters. Passion is the only key driving force that keeps people in the theatre industry.

● Are online workshops efficient if one wants to learn theatre art? (27:35 – 29:42)

➔ If a student is a beginner, my personal advice would be not to go on with online classes as I don’t think that is the right option for beginners. I believe the online platform does not provide the right approach for students to express their creativity. Also it lacks transparency for the teacher to understand whether the student is grasping the knowledge or not. Maybe the technological aspect is something that is beyond my understanding.
