The primary purpose of the group is to do give quality theatre productions and apply the art form in various walks of life. His founder (principal trainer) Pritesh Sodha is an acclaimed theatre Actor, Director, Producer, Light designer in Gujarati and Marathi Theatre and has a lot of plays to his credit, like ‘Kanji no K’, ‘Pramey’, ‘Manchha’, ‘Tee..’, ‘Nanimaa’ and ‘Dear Father’ to name a few.

Utopia Communications has affiliations with renowned theatre personalities and theatre spaces with special attention mention of Kamlesh Mota, Bhavans, The NCPA and Prithvi Theatre.

Utopia Communications intends to initiate ‘i3 plan’ – a theatre workshop with the objective of using Forum theatre techniques for resolving everyday conflicts.
Forum Theatre is like Yoga for the mind!
Theatre has the power to cure the mind as Yoga has to cure the body. This activity based workshop has been designed to use forum and make it relevant in day to day life.

The following are the basic details of the course:

Imagination:
a session which is focused on getting the participants come up on their feet and imagine themselves and things around as anyone anything, anywhere! Idea is to release the inhibitons. introduction to bertolt brecht’s ‘gestus’ acting technique and also do famous theatre exercises by Augusto Boal like ‘joe egg’, ‘colombian hypnosis’, ‘pushing against each other’, ‘racing chairs’ etc.

Interpretation:
introduction to the technique of story writing. participants as groups will be given a set of stories from and a list of props available at their disposal; they have to make their own play from it!

Implementation:
introduction to augusta boal’s ‘forum theatre’ or ‘theatre of the oppressed’ introducing to drama therapy which focuses on forms of internalized oppression played out by a protagonist in relation to an antagonist. participants are divided into groups on the basis of a common internal oppression and each group come up with their short scene for Forum Theatre to begin. All participants now are spect-actors. They are responsible & accountable to speak their ideas for the change they want to see.

A few words on Forum Theatre: Becoming a participant of Forum is a process of realization and reflection. It can be unsettling and painful when buried feelings are stirred, but there can be no better way to voice one’s struggle, whether in one’s personal life, in the classroom, at a workplace or on the warring borders of countries. The subject of the Forum can be ever-changing, but what remains constant is the empathetic human dialogue it generates – something the world could use more of; something worth spreading wherever life takes you.
