Acting workshop level 1
Level 1 is the foundation course which aims to bring out the fun of acting, make participants shed their inhibitions, teach them stagecraft, pantomime, and character building. It is also for people without any background in acting. The objective is to make them as natural as possible.
The course is unique because it focuses on bringing out the originality, the creativity, and the attention to detail in the actor, by letting the actor create their very own concepts and execute these, in the form of numerous short plays, during the course of the training.
The course includes:
- Breaking inhibitions: getting people comfortable to act, in front of an audience.
- Actor’s Magic – A unique concept designed by Amrit Basran
- Voice: Understanding the components, and projection of voice.
- Listening skills.
- Scene creation and Character creation.
- Script creation.
- Fine tuning of theatre craft.

Acting workshop level 2
Level 2 focuses on taking the actor to a different plane of performance – from natural to real. It’s called ‘acting in the moment’. Despite being rehearsed, the performance looks real because the actor becomes one with the character.
This course takes the actor on an inward journey, where the actor taps into his/her emotions, and then merges it with the characters’ being.
The Course includes:
- Breaking down of a scene
- “In the moment” acting – despite numerous rehearsals the performance looks real as if happening for the first time.
- In depth analysis of the primary emotions and actors journey through each emotion
- Triggers – Finding your “triggers”
- Transitioning from being natural to being real
- Creating layers, subtexts and shades to make your character engaging
- Advanced treatment of characterisation and improvisation.
- The “emotional dance between comedy and drama”.
