Acting Workshop “The Thinking Actor’’culminates
11/28/2021 8:15:06 PM


JAMMU, Nov 28: “The Thinking Actor’’, an Intensive Acting Workshop culminated here today at Natrang Studio with the presentation of 'Navrasas Demonstration' followed by a scene work ‘The Methods’ which was based on a story of Anton Chekhov and directed by talented National School of Drama alumni, Bhasha Sumbli and Sunil Soni. It was a visual treat to watch the presentation embellished by creative set design, rich light design and soulful music. Speaking on the occasion, Director Natrang, Sh. Balwant Thakur complemented the participants who got trained from the learned and experienced mentors and asserted that this endeavour of Natrang has certainly yielded fruitful result in the overall growth of the young theatre aspirants of Jammu. He also appreciated the workshop directors for their praiseworthy efforts in imparting wholesome training to the youngsters and also mounting a highly professional and impressive presentation with them.
The show began with an intense nine emotion series called ‘Navras Abhyas’ which was demonstrated beautifully by a batch of nine actors. This was followed by a presentation of a scene work, ‘The Methods’ which bares the philosophy and manoeuvres of an expert bachelor seducer, Peter, who demonstrates his foolproof methods to influence the young wife of his close friend, Nikolaich, comparatively a simpleton. Peter showers adulations on latter’s wife, Irena, in an attempt to secure her, who later gives in but retaining her sobriety and unbending dignity. It is a series of scenes that, give us a strong sense of Chekhov’s take on the human condition.The story exposes the ridiculous, tender, outlandish, ludicrous, innocent, and weird frailties of human beings.
The scene work had 14 actors playing just three characters, as their alter egos, apart from Chekhov, who was the unifying element in the scenes, introducing them, commenting on them, and occasionally playing a role in them, but as a quirky version of the celebrated author.
The artists who participated in the presentation included Mahikshit Singh, Shivam Singh, Priya Sharma, Meenakshi Bhagat, Gautam Sharma, Diksha Pandita, Sagar Gupta, Kushal Bhat, Abhinav Sharma, Bhawani Singh Bali, Mohit Kaul, Prohitdeep Singh, Bhabik Sambyal, Palshi Dutta and Kajal Pandita. The lights of the play were designed and operated by Bhasha Sumbli whereas the set design and the sound were operated by Sunil Soni. The presentation was coordinated by Neeraj Kant, Mohd. Yaseen and Brijesh Avtar Sharma.
