A one-of-its-kind collaboration between a cultural space and a theatre entity - Atta Galatta and Tahatto come together for the 2nd Edition of a theatre programme that goes beyond just performances being the language between the theatremaker and the audience. Instead of the space deciding the curation of initiatives that happen around it (as is usually the norm), a collaboration ensures that the makers, the viewers and the space push one another to engage in better, more relevant theatre and theatre-related initiatives and interactions.
About the Workshop
A carefully designed 6-day, 3-weekend course that has been designed by Tahatto as a detailed Book Tickets Romeo and Julietand passionate guided tour towards preparing oneself for the stage, for a role and for what it takes to practice theatre. Spread over 3 Weekends - Saturdays & Sundays starting Feb 21st entails exploring the skills that go into... well... entering stage right. The workshop has also been designed to stay focussed on the final performance by the participants who will put up a complete performance at Atta Galatta on March 7th & 8th. The performance is of an original script written by Tahatto. This ensures that right from the commencement of Enter Stage Right, the participants work and experiment on a script, into which methods and modules learnt at the workshop can be applied. Furthermore, the Atta Galatta performance space allows possibilities for making the performance that much more unique and personal for both the performers and the audience.
The workshop is scheduled across 3 Weekends starting Feb 21st. Spacing the sessions across weekends, of course, makes it easier for working professionals and students, but the larger reason is that the week in between enables participants to absorb material from the session and work on it either collectively or individually. Since the workshop is also built around a performance that already has its script ready, individuals can apply methods from the workshop sessions into the text they have and build it into their performances practically.
The modules in the workshop touch upon critical aspects of theatre including:
Introduction to theatre and its demands
Understanding the actor's tools - body, voice and sensibility
Stage presence & ensemble dynamics
The importance of routine & preparation
Methods of performance readiness
The workshop will be conducted at Atta Galatta, which also doubles up as the rehearsal space for the performance slated to premiere on March 7th & 8th which will be open for audiences.

"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."
