The NCPA Summer Fiesta returns in 2012 in a bigger, better avatar, with a wide range of workshops and plays for children.
In 2012 NCPA Summer Fiesta returns to focus on diversity over and above quantity, both within and between workshops. The dance workshops have a range of forms including Jazz, Bharatanatyam and Kathak through which various children’s activities such as retelling the Panchatantra will be explored. The theatre workshops include but are not restricted to theatre games, activities, acting, improv, and comedy. Apart from these there will be a few creative writing workshops and a handful of workshops across the spectrum of music, arts & crafts, and puppetry. To ensure that evenings can be a time for the family, the NCPA will once again have children’s plays that can be enjoyed by everyone from the 6 year old to Dada-Dadi and Nana-Nani.
Our friend Chintan Girish Modi is also conducting a workshop for 12 to 14 year olds from 2nd to 4th May at the National Centre for Performing Arts (NCPA), Mumbai. Registrations have started – sign up now!
About the workshop :
“Are diaries only for wimpy kids? Can diaries become friends who listen without advising, who understand without asking all the embarrassing details, who can hold secrets without spilling them? This hands-on workshop will get participants to explore how they think and feel about themselves through games, activities, music and stories. Participants will be encouraged to express themselves in inventive ways, with and without words. What if a secret diary is found? We`ll learn about code language too.”
