Pomegranate What’s Your Story?

We are back with one of our most popular workshops!

Writing is an art, writing is a skill, writing is staring at a blank page before you have to submit an article or deliver a speech. Or you’re writing a novel, but can’t make it past the first chapter. How do you go about it? How do you best present your ideas, how do you say what you mean, how do you tell a good story?

At What’s Your Story? we take you through the fundamental process of writing through a plethora of forms including creative Non-Fiction (biographical writing, food writing), Fiction (plot, character, setting, dialogue), Poetry (lunch poems and Ekphrasis) and Playwriting (writing for the stage).

What’s Your Story? is an intensive module where writers of any level – beginners or professionals – can find their voice and hone their craft under the guidance of authors, creative writing specialists, and playwrights. The workshop promises a selection of representative reading, challenging writing exercises and extensive feedback through group and individual critiques of the participants’ writing.

This workshop is open to all those looking to improve their writing skills – in fiction or non-fiction, irrespective of profession or previous experience. If you have a novel idea, we assure you it’s a likely story.

At What’s Your Story? we traverse a plethora of forms and mediums ranging from creative non-fiction (biographical, experiential writing, food writing), Fiction (Plot, Character, Setting, Conflict, Dialogue), Poetry (lunch poems which (will be conducted outdoors)  and Ekphrasis, (which will be conducted at an art gallery in the city- information will be given once the course commences) and Playwriting (writing for the stage).

Art with the Artists 2016

Categorized Under: Latest News Dated: 28 September 2016 No Commented

Pomegranate’s Art With The Artists!

There is an artist within all of us – restless, confused, bouncing off the walls in a padded cell deep within us. You know it – you’ve felt its sharp pangs all your life. When you look at a work of art, or an artist at work, and just wish that you could paint like that; when, out of the blue, you find yourself wondering where you’d be today if you’d pursued your passion in childhood; when you buy sketchbooks or colours on sheer impulse.

But what does one do? Art is not a joke: it requires time, practice and guidance. At this age, who will teach us drawing and painting? With our busy work schedule, is there time to try painting at all? While we hesitate, and fear, and wonder, the artist in us continues to languish in its cage.

2016 is the year when the artist in you finds release. Art with the Artists is a workshop that provides you with the thrill of experimentation, the freedom of artistic expression and the skills to capture beauty in all its forms.

Art with the Artists is a 12-week course where our expert faculty will teach you basic techniques and guide you in the usage of several art materials: Watercolor, Oil, and Acrylic, Terracotta in addition to an introduction to the ThemesStyles and Techniques of landmark world artists across western and Indian art. All materials used at the workshop will be provided by us. Our faculty consists of Artists and Art experts who will impart their skills and experience to the participants in an easy, hands-on manner. The skills and techniques that you acquire at this course will enable you to pursue art at any level of your choosing.

Art with the Artists is a unique opportunity to learn skills in art that will last you a lifetime. The workshop is open to all – irrespective of prior skill or experience. Let go the artist within you!

Categorized Under: Latest News Dated: 02 May 2016 No Commented

Pomegranate’s Experience Theatre!

July 2016- Feb 2017

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!

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 underpins the entire program.

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:

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.

Write It, Paint It, Act It!

Before the curtain is raised, before the lights come on – that’s when dreams are spun. Write It, Paint It, Act it takes children to the root of the creative process: where ideas are hatched, stories are made and the stage is set.

At Write It, Paint It, Act it, children will create and develop a single story on all fronts – writing, art and performance – and build it up to put up a small work in progress presentation on the final day. Over the course of this workshop, the children will learn to make stories, create new worlds through art and perform their own story as a script, with characters and all.

They will be guided by a team of arts practitioners including theatre actors, scriptwriters and visual artists.

All the world’s a stage at this workshop, where children will rescript a Shakespeare play, recast it with their own characters, build their own props, assemble their own costumes and “strut and fret their hour upon the stage” for all to see.

Screen Play is a one-week workshop where children discover the power and potential of film – and their own creative genius with it. At Screen-Play children will watch films from all over the world, observe the world around them and the stories hidden therein, and learn the technical aspects of film making such as handling a video camera, shooting and editing their own films.

In 2011, films made by the children at Screen-Play and our animation workshop Bringing Life to Art were selected for the 17th International Children’s Film Festival of India (ICFFI) in Hyderabad. The Festival showcased not only films made for children but also those made by children under a separate category, with a separate panel of judges. The festival was attended by children from all over India who arrived as ‘delegates’ in their own right as part of school contingents.
