Abhivyakti, Lekhan ani Natak Workshop by Abhiram Bhadkamkar (India)

This workshop on playwriting was the fourth in the workshop series at IITF 2019. Understanding playwriting requires understanding the character to the core. A writer needs to take care of the many factors affecting the character and also consider the backstory of the character. The participants were thoroughly engaged in the interaction session with the facilitator. Understanding the basics of writing without having to be told how to write and what pattern to follow but explore were some of the things the participants enjoyed. The workshop was a medium for the aspiring playwrights to explore their inner self and understand how the time and space unbound plays are written. They were given the scope of finding their own style, reason, and way of writing a play while they were guided in terms of how to go about this exploration.
