Creativity, Connection, and Evolution in the Performing Arts
WIN is taking the forward the conversation on Creativity, Connection, and Evolution in the Performing Artson July 29thJuly, at 7:00 PM. WINpresents to you an exceptional panel discussion with some India’s female changemakers and trailblazers such as Dolly Thakore: Theatre Actor, Casting Director, Curator; Dilnaz Irani: Film and Theatre Actor; Ritu Bhatia: Playwright and Screenplay Writer; andAmrita Chowdhury: Entrepreneur and Innovator.
The discussion aims to give some fresh new outlooks and stances with respect to the theatrical performing arts that have seen continuous evolution in themes, formats, approach to storytelling, and modes of performance to reflect changes in society, technology, and production. India has seen pathbreaking performative content – which has been conceptualized and storyboarded and delivered in new ways and reached new audiences. In the recent times, digital and social media and technology platforms have touched this sphere as well. It will be intriguing to deliberate on how the digital future would further shape this space.
Amrita Chowdhury, who is an author, entrepreneur and innovator, states that, “This episode of Winning Minds brings together stalwarts from theatre and drama – content creators and performers. We will dive through their journeys to understand the motivational drivers and paths to creative success in the performing arts. We will seek to explore the role of technology in the creation, communication, and performance – and the nature of changes in this space.”
Dilnaz Irani, who is a Film and Theatre Actor, states that, "Yes of course, theatre has changed in the last year and a half...changed drastically...but then the question arises, canwe still call it theatre? "
Ritu Bhatia, who is a Playwright and Screenplay Writer says, "Theatre has always struggled as a niche art form, but these last 2 years have hit the performing arts like nothing else. I think the need of the hour is to create public spaces for ourselves- do versions of Shakespeare in the park, do an upgraded Nukkad Natak format - if the audience won't or can't come to you - you go to them.”
This insightful, in-depth session will be broadcasted across social media platforms such as Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram.
