Pomegranate’s Experience Theatre!

July 2017- Feb 2018

Registrations are now open for Pomegranate’s extremely popular integrated theatre program with top notch faculty!

Productions from Pomegranate’s earlier Experience Theatre programs now form a repertory of shows that get performed across the city of Mumbai in top venues creating a unique segment of theatre by young adults for young adults!

In 2016 Pomegranate’s student production Antigone 2.0 was in the top 10 theatre picks for the year by the Mumbai Theatre Guide.

Pomegranate’s plays ‘Take Me Home’ and ‘What is Success’ premiered at G5A, centre for arts and contemporary culture in February this year. Pomegranate shows have been selected and performed at the National Center for the Performing Arts (‘Antigone 24×7’) and have been featured multiple times at Sitara Studio (‘The Wizard of Oz and Rapunzel Retold!’ ‘Playtime’ and ‘Whats in A Play’?) and the P L Deshpande Academy (The Fall of Zahhak, A Tale from The Shahnameh).

Pomegranate’s highly reputed multi faculty Experience Theatre program focuses on every aspect of theatre: building self awareness, spatial awareness, movement, rhythm, improvisation, mime and clowning,  voice (clarity, projection, inflection, pauses and exercises for cultivating the voice). Body language, gestures, role playing, use of physical space and props.

Most importantly the participants entirely imagine and script their final production through a unique facilitated process which enables them to adapt a text/build a story from scratch, write dialogue, envisage the entire story and then perform it.

Program Highlights:

Constant creation, the joy of sheer play, expanding the imagination, improvisation, ensemble work, heightened expression through the body, cultivating spatial awareness, developing mutual trust as a team,  working with excerpts from plays, clowning, voice work, collectively creating through different stimuli like painting, poetry and finally, the grand culmination in the form of an adaptation of an existing play or a novel, or building a play from scratch where the ideas and experiences introduced before will be consolidated and newer questions like sound and set design will be encountered to make for a year-long intense experience with theatre.

In addition, observing and appreciating each other’s performances through the year will help cultivate the art of spectatorship and develop a dramatic vocabulary.

Program Faculty includes:

Joy Fernandes has over 25 years of theatre experience both internationally as well as nationally. His experience spans across working on stage, in films, on TV, in advertisements, writing a book, conducting workshops, conceiving, designing & directing events, writing ad copy and scripts!

Joy has just completed an extremely well received tour of Merchants of Bollywood directed by Toby Gough across London and Berlin, where he played the principal character of Shantilal Merchant. The production has also toured Australia (Perth) and Singapore and had a 17 city tour of China.

In A Midsummer Night’s Dream directed by Time Supple, Joy played the lead character of Nick Bottom and travelled successfully to perform over 250 shows (spanning more than 2 years) in UK, USA, Australia, Canada, Verona and India.

Here is what The Guardian, UK has to say about Joy

‘…And there is a magical moment in the play when the dying Pyramus announces ‘my soul is in the sky’…it is appropriate that the line is spoken by Joy Fernandes’ Bottom, since his performance epitomises the virtues of this production. Fernandes has weight, dignity and the total dedication of the artisan turned actor…’ – Michael Billington, The Guardian, UK.

Gerish Khemani: “Words are all I have, the rest is quite expensive”, remarks Gerish, while surveying the world around. Gerish is an M.A (Hons) in English Literature from the University of Mumbai. He has been determinedly pursuing theatre since 2006. Gerish anchored two year long multi faculty theatre programs for the The Pomegranate Workshop where he got the children to stage an adaptation of the Wizard of Oz, Rapunzel – The Story Retold (ages 9-12 years) and adaptations of the Greek tragedy Antigone and an excerpt from the medieval Persian text – The Shahnameh. These productions have had multiple shows including one at the National Centre for the Performing Arts, where Antigone was selected for staging as part of the Zest Youth initiative. Gerish has also worked on multiple adaptions of Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s dream at Pomegranate. Gerish has been involved with Working Title’s ‘Once Upon A Tiger’ and has acted in a number of other productions (Arabian Night, Look Back in Anger, Tukra’s dream, Three Short Plays by Ranjit Hoskote and Kachra Tales). Gerish has recently returned from a study program at the London International School’s Performing Arts program in Berlin.

Theatre Mentorship in Humour!

The Pomegranate Workshop presents a unique individual mentoring opportunity for young adults to develop the skills and artistic experience to evolve as theatre artists specializing in humour. The Y-IMPACT Project is an intensive mentorship-based program where the mentees leverage their own artistic interests and skills to emerge with a body of work of their own which Pomegranate will then enable them to showcase/perform to a public audience.

Participants will be introduced to various kinds of humour like stand-up, cross-talk, ensemble, comedic sketches, song and music parodies, mime-clown-buffoonery and genres like satire, parody, absurdist, farce, self-deprecating and dark humour.

They will then work with the mentor on selected styles and organically create their very own performance pieces that they pick to explore in detail.

At the end of the mentorship the mentees will have created their very own humour based performance that Pomegranate will showcase as a public event.

In addition, Pomegranate follows a sustained strategy to showcase strong performances and films that emerge from our mentorships from time to time through public events at suitable venues, as opportunities and funding possibilities present themselves.
