Abhivyakti, Lekhan ani Natak – Abhiram Bhadkamkar (INDIA)

This was a two-day writing workshop facilitated by senior playwright Abhiram Bhadkamkar. The focus of the workshop is to bring us fresh ideas for performances and finding unique expression. He shared that plays have to be written to tell the truth. A particular play is written since one thinks about a particular situation, analyses it and then presents it to the audience. It is a recreation of what is seen. For effective
expression, a human being should be sensitive to his or her roots, ponder upon the roots of his/her experience and think about it strongly. What happened is not as important as how it happened. A writer has to tell nothing but everything with just his words.
