Chandigarh, February 4, 2019: “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’ said Dr.Navdeep Kaur, Chairperson, Department of Indian Theatre, Panjab University, Chandigarh.
She further added that 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, she added.
This year Department of Indian Theatre is going to open its third student production “Ek Tha Gadha…” on 05-02-2019 and 06-02-2019 at 7:00 p.m. The student production is directed by Nitin, student of M.A. II (4th Semester). The duration of play is one hour and twenty five minutes. All the students of M.A.-I and M.A.II are participating in this annual production of the department.
