"Alarms and Excursions" at Ranga Shankara on Feb 5th and 6th,2009

Dramanon, the young theatre group of Bangalore, is staging “Alarms and Excursions” on Feb 5th & 6th at Ranga Shankara.

About Alarms and Excursions:

Alarms and Excursions by Michael Frayn, is both farcical and comic. The play comprises of two playlets that share a central theme: a humorous & critical commentary on disconnection between people. The play explores the obtuse humor in our off the hook, disconnected relationships with ourselves and with each other – and the resulting tragic-comedy of such a set up.

The first playlet “Doubles” involves two couples who check into identical hotel rooms next to each other. Their rooms, which are mirror images of each other, are separated by thin walls. Through the play, we slowly discover that the only thing that eventually separates them is not the physical wall between the rooms, but the invisible walls between each other.

The second playlet “Immobiles,” is an exposé of human disconnection in a world without mobile phones. A frustrated couple tries to coordinate a proper meeting place using an answering machine and coin operated phone booths for their foreign friend when he arrives at the airport. Broken bones and broken hearts are the result of this techno faux pas.

Ranga Chitra at Ranga Shankara on Nov.4th 2008

Ranga Chitra, a day of film screenings on travelling theatre, is scheduled to be held at Ranga Shankara on 4 November at 2.00 pm and 7.30 pm. The screenings are a part of the Ranga Shankara Theatre Festival ’08 which pays tribute to Company Theatre, which dominated the Indian stage in the early part of the 20th Century.

Six films will be screened as part of Ranga Chitra including Naveen Kishore’s Performing the Goddess: The Chapal Bhaduri Story; Ariane Mnouckine’s Molière; M S Sathyu’s Gubbi Company; K Madhusudhanan’s Maya Bazaar – The Survival of a 120-year-old Theatre Family and Anand Gupt’s The Role of Theatre Brochures. Envisaged as theatrical journeys with the repertory companies, five of the selected films examine the life and art of traveling actors in France and across India (in Andhra Pradesh, Assam, Karnataka and West Bengal). One film showcases one of the most durable artifacts of what is truly an ephemeral art: the theatre brochure.

Ranga Chitra will be screened in two sessions on 4 Nov (Session 1: 2:00 to 5:30 pm; Session 2: 7:30 pm to 10:30 pm). Admission to the film screenings is free. Entry passes are available at the Ranga Shankara ticket counter from 10 am – 12.30 pm and 5.00 – 7.30 pm (all days).

"Choong Hyang": Korean Play at Ranga Shankara

Ranga Shankara and InKo Centre, Chennai present Choon-Hyang (True Love), a world-class Korean play in English on 22 October & 23 October at 7.30 pm. This is a part of Ranga Shankara’s Theatre For Children program AHA!, that is supported by Britannia Industries Limited.

Choon-Hyang has played to great acclaim in New York, Edinburgh, Shanghai and Singapore and will play in Bangalore as part of their India tour.

Written and directed by Kevin Kim, Choon-Hyang tells the traditional Korean story of a young girl named Choon-Hyang. A heart-warming tale, it has been passed down orally in Korea for centuries. Choon-Hyang will transport the audience to the magic of ancient Korea through music, dance and the sheer exuberance of its young actors! This acclaimed production by Theatre Seoul stars 19 young Koreans between 9 and 18 years of age.

Another major highlight of the play is that the costumes have been created exclusively from traditional Korean Hanji paper, which is known for extraordinary strength and elasticity. The designs and colours that have been created in this paper for the costumes are amazing and one of its kind.

Tickets are priced at Rs. 200. Online booking is available at www.bookmyshow.com. Like always, Ranga Shankara has organized two shows exclusively for schools, on the mornings of 23 Oct and 24 Oct. Schools can reach out on 26493982 or aha.rangashankara@gmail.com for more details. (more…)

Ranga Shankara Theatre Festival 2008: First Internship Program

Ranga Shankara announces its first internship programme during its upcoming Theatre Festival 2008. Applications are invited from interested candidates before 24 September 2008.

Since its commencement in 2004, the annual Ranga Shankara Theatre Festivals have brought the best of Indian and international theatre to Bangalore. This year’s Festival will provide six interns the opportunity to gain first-hand knowledge of how a theatre works and to work with India’s leading theatre professionals in a positive and energised environment.

The Festival Internships run for 45 full days, starting on 1 October 2008 and concluding on 15 November 2008. The internships are open to graduates available to work full time for the 45-day period. Graduates in Journalism, Mass Communication and Event Management are especially encouraged to apply. Certificates will be issued to the interns on completion of the internship. The internship is an unpaid position.

The philosophy of the programme is to have interns work with the staff and theatre practitioners on a daily basis in preparation for the Annual Theatre Festival, observing practical applications of skills required in theatre and festival administration and applying those skills to assigned tasks.

Through this exposure to theatre professionals at work—and to their audiences—interns will learn what a Theatre Festival means to the life of a community, and how the life of a community enriches its theatre. Interns will, thus, experience the rewards and challenges associated with producing theatre in the professional theatre community. While every effort is made to make internships a valuable educational experience, interns are expected to perform a variety of tasks, not all of which will be glamorous.
