Young Monks Theatre Education is a contemporary theatre practice and education for children. Based on our research on Indian and Western performance practices this theatre education program aims at building a wide and deep foundation for the child’s future growth as an actor & in real life.

Theatre is also expressing feeling and emotions, imagining and co – creating. It is a space which provides freedom for young people to explore various aspects of life, to develop their emotional & sensory faculties & to express themselves with a sense of purpose, understanding & beauty.

In this ritual of theatre, childhood is well spent in practicing those essential things which otherwise gets buried under the ‘normal’ daily routine.

Here we discover the poetry of life. We read together stories and learn how to make our own stories & scripts. We practice speech and movements to bring the stories to life. We make friends and have fun.

Weekly sessions on hybrid mode .Medium of instruction is English.
