Workshop on Nautanki – Gillo Repertory Theatre

Nautanki is one of the most popular folk operatic theatre performance forms of India, particularly northern India. The workshop took a look at exploring Nautanki’s rich musical compositions and humorous, entertaining storylines that hold a strong influence over rural Peoples
imagination. The workshop facilitators conducted some voice exercises specially designed for Nautanki. They taught some songs and also took some improvisations in which actors had to both sing and act as they do in Nautanki.
