Are you ready to play in a Play?
This is an initiative by Szoon, for actors (beginners/non-beginners) who want to get more exposure on stage and take part in an amazing journey where actors explore several forms of acting and story-telling on stage or street.
Actors who understand the needs, rather than training, it is to prepare the instrument/tool ( Our Body, Senses, Voice, Mind, and Heart) and get equipped, gain confidence to achieve a level of belief, to take on any platform. As opposed to film or TV, stage/theatre pushes an actor to take on a challenge where he/she needs to perform his whole story in one go, without any kind of retakes. It also demands range in your voice to reach the last person standing in a theater, and to accomplish this, an actor has to train his or her voice, which also plays a handy role in an actor’s over-all journey.
Theatre actors also get to understand the importance of space in any performance whether it’s whole theatre group or a monologue or a soliloquy, it keeps the mathematics in exercise, as one has to keep the lights in mind and not to forget about the set and the distance from the audiences.
Theatre offers and challenges you to face your audience directly. It also encourages actors to go for the connection first (with co-actors and viewers) so that their audience doesn’t feel faked, cheated, or detached.
