Jebkatre’. It is an online workshop for people looking for creative engagement. ‘Jebkatre’ roughly translates to ‘petty thieves’ in English. It embodies the idea that we often use in devising plays, which is to get inspired by someone else’s ideas, movement, images, anecdotes and as collaborators work with each other to create performance material. We started it during 2020 as an attempt to stay connected to our creative self & each other. However, with time, it evolved into a meeting place of skills, stories and reflections.
It is designed as a space to work on our creative intuition through 8 sessions spread across a month’s time. All the sessions are one on one and will focus upon what you are interested in exploring as a performer/creator/artist/human. There are various modules that can be customized to accommodate your needs. The modules include various elements from our work as devisers, writers, actors and performers. Voice work, Character techniques, Physical responses, Breath, Musicality, Embodiment, Creative Stimuli are some of them.

Kid Friendly - A web workshop on Story Reading Skills for Parents/Adults
Dear Story Reader
Welcome to this web workshop. Here, we'll be learning how we can engage children to actively listen to the stories we read out to them.
In these COVID times, the amount of time our kids spend in front of a screen is only increasing. How can we make them spend more time with stories?
So come along and let's pick up some skills to make the stories we read come alive. Can we tell stories in an IMMERSIVE way? Can we make them play based?
From Character voices to creating the mood of the storybook, from asking interactive questions to engaging them in tasks, we'll understand how we can read to them in a way that is joyful, engaging and fun.
No prior storytelling experience is required. We will choose books that are contemporary and Inclusive. We will read from open source websites so that the book will also be available with you post your session.
