The actor is a just a channel..a catalyst – that gives form or color to the emotions in the story – which ultimately touches the audience. As the curtains fall and the spotlight fades, the audience just takes away those wonderful moments with them (irrespective of the story). Hence it is all the more important for the actor to stay in tune with his/her emotions. To explore his/her inner depths. To realize what he/she is capable of contributing to a particular character. And above everything else the actor has to  learn the art of taming an emotion/feeling.

These are just a few of the insights that I personally learnt today in a theatre workshop conducted by Rahul from Join the Dots Theatre Workshop For All.

It was insightful and fascinating to discover and connect with one’s self in an altogether different manner. That too on a platform like theatre!

I think my love of cinema and everything associated with it (more or less) also contributed in me giving my 100% to the instructions. While I don’t want to spill the beans as to what exactly was the process we went through, I just wished that we had a little more time to fine-tune our performances! Brilliant stuff! Seriously recommended for those constantly seeking newer experiences.
