First Encounter, पहली मुलाक़ात

First encounters are truly the most impressionable. It is the moment where we engage with utmost authenticity, openness, and acceptance. Just like people, the first encounter with a play gives us an idea about the crux of it – what it is actually about. This module is all about meeting the script ‘Reech’, which is the Hindi adaptation of Anton Checkov’s ‘The Bear’. The classes focus on some of the preliminary and foundational concepts that one can keep in mind while reading any script for the first time.

Deconstructing a Script, छोटे बड़े हिस्से

A script is like a treasure trove having many tiny and massive pieces of information hidden in the entire story. To understand the script in the best way, it becomes crucial to break the script into several many parts only to once again build it all together at the end. This breaking up is a very important step in analysing any given script. It helps readers to process the intricacies of each section of the script, in order to understand the script as a whole. This module explains the technique behind understanding the script, both, in parts and as a whole.

World of a Script, अंदर बाहर की दुनिया

Every script has its own unique world, both, inside and outside its story. This world of the script deeply impacts the character’s life. A character’s way of life is influenced by their social upbringing, their present environment, the culture they exist in, and their socio-economic situation. In many ways, the world of the script determines a character’s actions and behaviour. This module is all about understanding these two worlds of a script – inside and outside – in order to completely immerse into the world of analysing a script.

Character Study, किरदारों से मुलाक़ात

Characters are the heart of a script and its story. They drive the narrative and humanise the story. Actions and dialogues are where they shine the best. A character in a script is fictional until it is understood. The moment we start to dive into their personal traits, thoughts, beliefs and opinions, they come alive and give dimension to the story they are telling. A good actor knows the importance of studying a character inside out and from all possible angles, such that the actor and the character seem like one. This module presents the technique to enter into the world of a character. This module dives deeper into the psyche of a character to understand what they actually are and want in a given script and its story.
