Season of Voice Workshops in Mumbai

Another amazing season of workshops put together by Padma Damodaran, program head for Performance Training and Development of Theatre Professionals, Mumbai. Last quarter it was a season of Physical Theatre Workshops that explored Commedia, Clown, and Chorus. This season, we address a much needed aspect of performance, the Voice and we do it through three highly interesting approaches.

Dr Sadhna Naik, who trained at the NYU Tisch School amongst other places explores Voice and the Actor (11 to 16 February 2013), Sunil Shanbag, who needs little introduction, looks at the Voice and the Scene (4 to 9 March), and finally Deshik Vansadia, who trained with Kristian Linklater and worked at Shakespeare and Co in the US, looks at Voice and Shakespeare (25 to 30 March).
