Cutting Chai with Bhawana Somaaya - Day 411

Object Workshop

Did you know that there was something called The Object Theatre Workshop where experts like Choiti Ghosh teach your children how to tell stories through objects around you? When we were children we were encouraged to look into the sky and make stories about the clouds, define meaning to the different shapes and weave characters. This was the innocent age when the computers had not taken over our lives and children played outdoors. Thank God somebody has felt the need to travel back in time and introduce a creative workshop for children.

Object Theatre takes this world of child-play into the theatre to make a symbolic art form and appeals to both the adults as well as children. Infact this workshop is for anyone interested in bringing back the make belief back in their lives. Applications are being accepted from professional performers/non-performers, storytellers, animators, visual artists, designers, educators, parents, people who work with or are interested in working with material in any way, anyone interested in thinking a little out of the box and speaking with tongues firmly in cheek!
