Chandigarh, November 20, 2018: Department of Indian Theatre at PU plans to hold two student productions this year instead of one . The dates for the scheduled productions are 21st and 22nd November. The productions are directed by two students of M.A II Atulya Manoj and Ankit Singh. The productions are based on Vijaydan Detha’s ‘Kenchuli’ directed by Ankit Singh and ‘Shadows’ based on Manto’s ‘Nangi Awazein’ and ‘Darpok’, directed by Atulya Manoj . All the students of the theatre depart participle in these productions. Vice Chancellor, Prof.Raj Kumar, will be the Chief Guest for the opening Show.
"Live performances are an integral and exciting part of our department’s academic curriculum. Student Productions are the outlet for the creation of new innovations in the department. Students are able to apply knowledge and techniques learned in the classroom to rehearsal and play production. Students are encouraged to express themselves through directing, acting, design and production in a collective experimental atmosphere. Through these productions students are given the opportunity to think imaginatively in order to achieve their vision for the creative journey from the text to performance. They also learn various life skills. Our goal is to provide more opportunities for students as these productions are designed to be the practical extension of our students work in the classroom and we are reliant on the talents and energies of our students to be involved in almost every aspect of the productions.” - Dr. Navdeep Kaur, Chairperson, Department of Indian Theatre, Panjab University, Chandigarh.
