Below are the details about the different workshops:


1. Ethology in Indian Oral Literature (7th March)


Right from the Panchatantra to the Jataka tales, the story way of teaching, sharing and documenting, used the animal world immensely.

However, we see them mostly in children’s tales.


A keen sense of natural observation was inherent in the story makers and using metaphors from the natural world was a common trait. This can come back into our vocabulary only if we open the doors to listening to the nature around us.


This workshop will explore the philosophy and ethology, thus connecting the human psychology that these tales inherit.


What will you learn through the workshop: 


  • The appreciation of animal tales for adults.
  • Connecting with the nature around us to brew new tales.
  • Create stories that look at our ecosystem more carefully.
  • Convey complex human emotions using the lens of animals, birds and other living beings
  • Creating stories that can travel to another generation


2. Every Object Tells A Story (14th March)


A space is surrounded by many things, small and big. What if they get a voice to speak?

The workshop will explore the world of objects, materials and the art of play/games to create stories and simple drama in the most impactful ways, using the items surrounding us. A stapler for a crocodile, charging wire for a skipping rope etc is just a glimpse into the ideas. The workshop will explore the world of simple joys in performing stories using the objects around us.


What will you learn through the workshop:


  • The curiosity to look at objects with life
  • Connecting with the audience through the medium of a miniature world
  • Create stories that are interactive and playful
  • Adding life to your performance/sessions/classes
  • Hooking the audience/listeners to your narrative

  • Teachers
  • Parents
  • Writers
  • Storytellers
  • Video Makers/Bloggers
  • Script Writers
  • Theatre Artists
  • Anyone who works through a story based on Heritage and anyone willing to learn something new.
