Actors’ Training Program

Every year, we organise our flagship six-month Actors’ Training Program. Here are some Frequently Asked Questions about the 2019 edition of the Program.

What is this Program about?
It’s the flagship yearly actors’ training program conducted by Nandikar.

When is the training?
It starts at 5pm on February 04, 2019 and continues for six months. Workshops will be held every Monday from 5pm to 8pm (three hours) and every Saturday from 3pm to 8pm (five hours).

Where will the workshops happen?
The sessions will happen at the Federation Hall, which is opposite Rajabazar Science College and beside Brahmo Girls School, in Kolkata. Here is a Google map of the place:

Who will conduct the sessions?
The program is designed and presided over by Rudraprasad Sengupta. In-house trainers of Nandikar including Rudraprasad Sengupta, Swatilekha Sengupta, Sohini Sengupta and Nandikar family will conduct the workshops. We also engage gurus from fields like dance, mime and music from time to time.

Who is it for?
The Program is for interested people aged between 18 and 30 years. If found exceptional, we might entertain some people above the age of 30. (We have a separate round-the-year Sunday program for children between 5 to 18 years divided into three different age groups).

What will be the language of communication?
The sessions will primarily be conducted in Bengali.

Will I get a certificate of participation?
Yes, if you regularly attend the sessions and complete the course you would get a certificate from us stating so.

Will participation in the workshop imply that I become a regular performer of Nandikar’s productions?
Not necessarily. However, we have regularly been inducting new members into our fold through this Program. Such inductions are based on mutual compatibility, engagement and commitment.

Do we have to give an interview to become a part of the Program?
We have an Interaction Session for this. Please note that to be able to participate in the Program, it is necessary to take part in the Interaction Session on one of the three days. The Interaction Sessions are from 4pm on January 26.

Children Workshop

What started off as the Theatre in Education program in collaboration with the Government of India about 30 years back, has now evolved into a full-fledged children’s training program that runs round the year.

Every Sunday, we have theatre sessions with children in three separate groups:
Group A: For children between 5 and 9 years of age
Group B: For children between 9 and 13 years of age, and
Group C: For children between 13 and 18 years of age

It won’t be right to say that these are run-off- the-mill acting workshops. In these sessions children are provided with a creative space where they are provoked to explore. They explore their body, their sense and their mind. They explore their surroundings and their friends in the same group. They are encouraged to co-operate (and not just compete, as many outside would like them to). They explore literature, music, art, dance and whatnot. And through all this, theatre is born.

If this sounds interesting, please get in touch.
