Theatre Appreciation Workshop at Ranga Shankara

The Ranga Shankara Theatre Festival 2009 will include the third edition of its very successful Theatre and Arts Appreciation Course, designed on the lines of the well-known Culture Course at Neenasam, Heggodu.

The Course, launched at the Ranga Shankara Theatre Festival 2007, provides a unique opportunity to learn the essence of art appreciation by developing new ways “seeing and listening”.

Renowned culture critic Sadanand Menon will spearhead the Theatre and Arts Appreciation Course 2009. A well-known writer on critical issues of politics and culture, Sadanand Menon is also a photographer and stage light designer. He has served as the Arts Editor for The Economic Times.

The course will examine and discuss theatre, cinema, dance, photography and music over six days (spread over two weekends) through lectures, film screenings, plays, as well as interaction with directors and actors. While bringing together a host of people from different backgrounds, the course will thus look at, and analyse the formal structures of various works of art as well as consider them in the context of the historical period and cultural framework in which they were produced.

The course is open to public from the age of 16 years. The course fee is Rs. 4000 (for six days) and the fee includes lectures, film screenings and tickets to plays. The course fee for students is Rs.500. Students will have to bring their id card during booking to avail this offer.

Registrations are currently open at Ranga Shankara (from 9.30 am to 6.00 pm). As the intake for this course is limited, we request you to please hurry and book your seats in order to avoid disappointment. For more information contact us on 080-26493982 or write to
