DiE Jams (Drama in Education Jams) by Sanyukta Saha
What? An organic space for those who work with people using drama to come together and jam. The few principles that exist currently are: Whoever’s present to Jam is the right person. Whoever’s there participates. Use this space to try exercises/experiences. If your exercise or game needs specific material or object, bring it along. Share news! Feed us.
Why? The number of applied drama practitioners is growing and yet there is a sense of either working in isolation, or existing in niches. The attempt is to create a space that runs without a meta-facilitator even, planned and curated by only the people in the room. That too, democratically.
How? The brainchild of Jehan Maneckshaw of Theatre Professionals and Drama School Mumbai fame, he has found co-conspirators in Aagaaz. The first Jam took place on the 9th of July and we figured that this random idea can actually float and be.
Where? Basement, C5, Nizamuddin West
When? Second Sunday of every month 9am to 11.30 am. Next date: 13 August 2017.
Who? Drama educators, theatre practitioners, drama enthusiasts, anyone willing to spend 2 and a half hours on a Sunday, playing and learning. What can you do? If you are still reading, you might be curious about being a part of this space in some way? Please don’t hesitate in getting in touch with Mridula at 9818015880 or Sanyukta at 9873853348.
