Theatre Workshop and performance enhancement programme:

Nautanki Theatre has launched a workshop based program aiming for the artist’s development. This program involves details of aesthetics related to Indian theatre. The program is suitable to all ages and can be tailor-made to cater for a group’s requirements.
The objective of this workshop based program is to prepare actors mainly from ethnic backgrounds or those who take a keen interest in Indian theatre, to equip them with various acting techniques so that mainstream Australian theatre and performing stages can accommodate a diversity reflecting the cross cultural society we live in.

Through regular workshops participants can learn new techniques, attend masterclasses and appreciate new ideas.
The aim of this programme is to give theatre going audiences and the community at large a cross cultural representation in mainstream theatre as well as creating a trained pool of actors.

• The performance enhancement programme is targeted for the theatre group. Whether you are a community based organisation or professional or independent theatre group Nautanki Theatre can workshop with the actors and creative team to bring the required Indian aesthetics into the production.
