How can it help?

All children gain a confidence which enables them to become fearless and take on everything as and when it happens in their life. Theatre develop a more self-confident in social and educational situations and commanding presence in your everyday life. It enhances your capability to express yourself both onstage and in real life by teaching  basic, solid acting skills. Through exercises, improvisations, monologues and scene work, children’ll:
    Unleash children natural performing abilities
    Tackle children fear of getting up in front of others 
    Tap into children creativity and imagination 
    Improve children vocal quality and resonance 
    Sharpen children listening skills 
    Think more spontaneously on his/her feet
    Release pent up stress and so much more like.....
 

Self Confidence and Public Speaking 

Through acting exercises, students become quite used to speaking in front of each other.  As they become more comfortable, their confidence increases correspondingly.  Character development allows students to feel more confident about public speaking, as it is not they but their characters who are speaking. Additionally acting focuses on vocal projection, articulation, and timing—things that trip up the anxious public speaker.  Armed with the confidence gained in class, students take to the stage with ease. 
 
Emotions,Expression with Effective Communication

Actors are always embodying new characters.  Through character development, the actors have to get in touch with their characters’ thoughts and feelings. They have to figure out what is motivating their characters to do the things they do.   Getting in touch with their characters' thoughts and feelings often helps actors to be more aware of their own thoughts and feelings.  A flow is created between using real-life situations to help with their acting and acting experiences to help them deal with real-life situations.  Understanding what motivates different characters helps people better understand those around them.  This awareness allows actors to empathize with others and communicate effectively.
 
 Teamwork and Cooperation

 Teamwork and cooperation are basic in acting.  Then again, can’t almost all activities claim teamwork as a benefit of participation?  Team sports require participants to get along and work together as a unit, so what makes acting so unique?  The difference is that in sports and other activities, usually the group is homogeneous—all girls, all boys, one age group, one skill level.  In putting on a theatrical performance, participants work with a diverse group—different ages, genders, and skill levels.  Participants learn how to interact with a wider scope of people.  Younger students learn from older students.  Experienced performers encourage the novices.  Through the experience they learn about group dynamics, finding their leadership and supporting roles to each other both on and off stage.

Kids also perform in a Swatantra Theatre Production

This years notable performances were Rabi Sansaar and Daakghar based on Nobel Laureate Rabindranath Tagore's classic stories.These performanceswere highly appreciated and will be performed at the National School of Drama this year.

Rabi Sansaar

  

Theatre is the strongest meduim to inbibe, study and to understand anything that exists on the earth and beyond.The main aim of such a classic and the most oldest form of presentation should be value creation and that what is we believe at Swatantra.

Swatantra Theatre's Children Actors are  performing a Theatre Play based on Rabindranath Tagore's classic stories.

1-Kabuliwala, 

2-Home Coming, 

3-Exercise book, 

4-My Lord ,The baby,

5-Masterji. 

These will be the stories that Children aging from 5 years to 14 years will be performing in a phenomenal way.

We are commemorating Rabindranath Tagore's 154th Anniversary.

What can be better for  Children in these holidays than leaning more about the First Nobel Prize winner from India rabindranath Tagore.

Our Motto being presenting such topics is creating awareness about Indian writers and Indian Literature.Something that belongs to the Country, understanding and relishing that is more important than being addictive to clueless cartoon which become mode of passing time these holidays.

Bringing with a Bengali flavour, helping to understand a another rich Culture of rich India.

Dakghar

  

 

Dakghar -a Play written by Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore is one of the most simple and elemental play.

This is known to be a universal play.

The story revolves around Amal.Amal stands in Madhav's courtyard and talks to passers-by, and asks in particular about the places they go. The construction of a new post office  nearby prompts the imaginative Amal to fantasize about receiving a letter from the King or being his postman. The village headman mocks Amal, and pretends the illiterate child has received a letter from the king promising that his royal physician will come to attend him. The physician really does come, with a herald to announce the imminent arrival of the king; Amal, however, falls asleep (or dies) as Sudha comes to bring him flowers.

Amal looks at the world through window........

Dakghar Performed First time in London

W.B. Yeats was the first person to produce an English-language version of the play.It was performed in English for the first time in 1913 by the Irish Theatre in London with Tagore himself in the attendance. The Bengali original was staged in Calcutta in 1917,Rabindranath himself has acted in a vital role in this play. It had a successful run in Germany with 105 performances.
