First Rush is an Evam initiative to democratize theatre. The goal is to give everyone a platform to get on stage and experience the magic of live performance. The format of First Rush is a simultaneous Actor's workshop plus a production creation process. Anyone who signs up for this ninety-hour program goes through an introductory acting workshop, post that they are involved in the process of creating a production from scratch. They start with a weekend workshop and part time rehearsals for 30 days and end with a final performance in front of an audience. Through the course of the rehearsals they are also given basic specialized training in voice, movement, character building and also theatre lighting and sound. The batch, which ideally consists of 15 to 25 people, is encouraged to get involved in all aspects of theatre. Apart from acting, under the leadership of an external director, they also design costumes, sets, settings, properties and even market the show and are in charge of selling tickets. The graduates are given video and photos of their play and a course completion certificate, one on one feedback to the individuals at the end of their performance.More Info >>

"Stayed at the amazing Jungle Wood Resort in Coorg, literally in the middle of a Jungle. The house is a 200 year old house managed by a family who has been running this for years. The silence, peace and 'no phone service' makes you feel so connected to the nature. Highly recommended if you just wanna run away! Huge shoutout to @townista. This was my first #TownistaTrip. Brilliantly arranged and such a hassle free experience. Much recommended if you are planning your next trip."
