In EnActe’s 2020-2021 year long Conservatory we will read and adapt The Jungle Book in the context of its origins, strip it of its colonial overtones and bring it back in all its raw essence – to the jungle where it was born!
Story, music, movement, choreography, masks, costumes and sounds of the jungle – our advanced theatre group will create all this with Master trainers!
It's Showtime! Perform in and present our original “The Jungle Book - Rudyard’s Revision” adaptation! Be a part of the Cast and Crew of this endearing tale stripped of colonial overtones and reimagined through the lens of identity and belonging. In the third module, the students become the cast and crew!! You will rehearse, incorporate design elements, and put together the entire show, learning the ins and outs of a professional theatrical production. The virtual performance will have its world premiere in June, 2021.
In this intensive program, taught by Artistic Director Vinita Sud Belani, students will adapt and develop Rudyard Kipling’s “The Jungle Book” into a dance and music laden theatrical production. Students will learn and apply the invaluable skills of story and character development and lyric-writing. Use your creativity and personal worldview to adapt the story for a contemporary audience!
In this exceptional creative process, taught by a variety of professionals in their field, students will learn and apply all the design components of executing this theatrical piece – lyric composition, sets, projection design, set design, choreography, costumes, music, movement and sound! Subject experts will conduct several Masterclasses. Ultimately, students are crafting the design for our brand-new play!
