THEATRE

Bringing Presidians to the spotlight is the ultimate aim of introducing theatre. By giving them opportunity to deliver, perform and enthral an audience via theatre we aspire to build stage confidence in our students. Many theatre festivals, stageplays, skits and role playing competitions are organised on a regular basis, to bring out the performer hidden inside every child.

MUSICAL THEATRE

NAVRASA- interpreted as the nine emotions, moods or sentiments that sum up the day to day lives of every human being. Shringara (love), Hasya(laughter), Karuna (kind-heartedness or compassion), Raudra (anger), Veera ( courage), Bhayanaka (terror), Bheebhatsya (disgust), Adbutha (surprise), and Shantha (peace or tranquillity). In Presidium, NAVRASA is an effort to sculpt the art of students and present it in the form of a musical theatre. It is an ostentatious and grandiose display of the ‘Nine Emotions’, The concept of 9 rasa’s guides students into understanding the human emotions better and also inculcates respect for the rich cultural heritage of India. The presentation of nine emotions in theatrical form opens new vistas for students and unravels the creative acumen in them.

STAGE PLAY

Staging is the process of selecting, designing, adapting to or modifying the performance space for a play or film. Herein students get an opportunity to adopt a character which can be a role model or an inspirational person who delivers a strong message. Stage plays can be influential in all aspects of life. Participating in plays can stimulate a student’s creativity and thought process. The whole experience of stage play makes them more aware and sensitive to various social issues. Performing on stage doesn’t always mean that you need to be vocal and heard. Conveying a message to the audience and communicating with them without actually talking is something and this is what we try to teach at Presidium by hosting diverse plays such as ‘The Wish’ - An enactment on the pressing issue of global warming.

SKIT COMPETITION

Dramatic play helps in the development of life skills in students we can set them on a path of a successful and confident life! Offering personal expression and catharsis of inner desires, dramatic play helps the students to distinguish between reality and fantasy. To provide for students’ social adaptation and improve their intellectual development through interaction, transformation, and imagination, skit competitions are organized in all the branches of Presidium. Our talented Presidians proactively participate in this enjoyable contest and deliver several stirring performances on various social issues. It is a visual bliss to see the young leaders performing confidently and also witnessing them learning numerous things through dramatics.

STREET PLAY - NUKKAD NATAK

Proudly associated with our magnificent culture and history, Nukkad Natak is the oldest form of storytelling and was used in communicating and connecting with the general public on important issues. It is an important educational tool to sensitise the community on social issues like female foeticide, substance abuse, molestation, and dowry. Presidians brilliantly capture the issues affecting our society through their impactful and bold performances in the Nukkad Nataks often conducted in school. Conveying such hard-hitting social messages in public spaces is a fine example of talent, artistry and unmatchable confidence.This thoughtful initiative by the leaders of tomorrow is commendable and sets an example of how the future generations can help shape an egalitarian social environment.

ROLE PLAYING

Role Playing is a fun and a ‘playful’ activity but also a key component in children’s learning. It is a social space that develops speaking and listening skills, as well as giving children the opportunity to reflect on and develop their knowledge of a topic, whilst sparking and enhancing creativity and imagination. At Presidium, Role Playing competitions are held at class and inter-class levels to boost confidence and communication. These competitions also stimulate the Presidians’ creativity as they take on a role for a new character and interact with different props. They dress up wonderfully as famous historical characters, political leaders and superheroes and leave the audience spellbound with impressive enactments.
