Businesses & Corporates

Since 2012, we have delivered high-quality and practical arts-based training to businesses in India and abroad. From practical workshops and customised training programs in line with your business goals to engaging theatre performances and shows based on larger themes, we pride ourselves on bringing theatre and drama into the workplace and offering up unique, creative experiences for your staff.

Much of our work is based on principles of improvisational theatre (or improv, as most know it) which requires little to no prior preparation, relies on fun and interactive drama games and is accessible to all – cutting across languages, geographies, professional and life experience – offering a safe and fun environment for individuals to notice their thoughts, emotions, behaviours and capabilities.

We offer both in-person, live programs for organizations in India and digital / online programs for those outside India. We are just as comfortable in a room as we are on a Zoom screen. All our programs are led by experienced facilitators and practitioners who not only have sizeable experience in the arts, but also have prior business experience themselves. Our programs have clear takeaways and tie-ins to your business objectives, making it easier for participants to relate this experience to their professional life.

Training Modules

You can explore and choose one of our existing modules for training, combine two or more for a multi-pronged focus or get in touch for a customized module.

Advanced Communication

The trainer wil guide participants to find their voice, articulate their own thoughts in a suitable way, acknowledge the presence of their team members in everyday settings and finding simple, direct and effective ways to communicate with them. The participants will also learn how to distinguish and tailor how they communicate with different people by making small, subtle changes.

Energy, Focus & Teamwork

We focus on three key components: Energy, Focus, and Teamwork. The workshop is structured into various games with the intention of first getting people into a comfortable space expressing themselves in a group. From there, once the group is at ease with each other, we start a process of fostering spontaneity. The main takeaways are improved communication, both inter-personal, within a team, and individual; improved public speaking, the participant should feel more comfortable vocalizing their ideas into clear and effective statements; and (in a corporate workshop) increased productivity generated by a resulting increase in energy and focus into the details of one's work.

Goal Setting

The trainer will focus on participants being able to set specific goals and make a concentrated, focused effort to reach them, both individually as well as in a group. Participants will also be supported to overcome certain restrictions / conflicts, make specific, critical choices and approach decision-making in a measured, yet, uncomplicated way

Respecting Restrictions

The trainer will introduce some restrictions oriented exercises to highlight how improv can be done (and enjoyed) even with certain restrictions imposed on the performer. The idea would be to juxtapose these principles of improv with real-life situations that the participants go through, in the hope they’re able to draw a parallel between the two.


The trainer will guide participants to become aware of their self and any preconceived notions / weight they are bringing into the workspace. Participants will learn to acknowledge, appreciate and accept their colleagues with whatever preconceived notions / weight they bring into the workspace. Participants will also discover tools to acknowledge that they are going through something and if yes, finding effective tools to self-regulate and manage their anxieties.

Trust & Team-Building

The primary focus of this session will be building trust, confidence, and compassion in the group towards each other. All activities will reinforce the idea of taking care of each other, the performers, in different scenes, games and how these principles can be applied to real-life by not only being self-aware but also aware of those around us. Partner based scene-work will be a focus.

Being In The Moment

The trainer will introduce games and exercises to build focus of participants and urge them to concentrate on what's happening in the present, in the space, right there and right then. The trainer will explore with the group ideas around how we postpone our happiness to specific moments in time, and by not thinking and focusing just on the moment, they can overcome such inhibitions.


This is a train-the-trainers workshop where the facilitator will build capacity in other individuals to conduct an Improv for Wellness workshop in their own communities and teams.The first half of the workshop will focus on building principles of effective facilitation based on the teaching methods of React UK, Theatre Of The Oppressed (Augusto Boal) and USAID. The second part of the workshop will focus on building strength in the principles of spontaneous improvisation and its connections to mental wellness.

No Judgement

The trainer will lead the participants on how to create a non judgemental space for each other. Furthermore, the ideas of not judging what someone says in the moment (either in rehearsal or in the show) will be highlighted.

Safe Spaces

The trainer will share tools and facilities with the participants to introduce and create non-judgmental spaces in their own settings, be it a corporate environment, a theatre environment or simply for their own self in their personal lives


The trainer will guide participants to recognize the small judgments we bring into our everyday lives. The participants will explore how to build a no judgement space for themselves and for those around them, through a series of games and activities that focus on removing inhibition and self-doubt, building empathy and compassion and strengthening self-awareness.

Conflict Resolution

This module focuses on the use of improv theatre games and exercises as effective tools for recognizing problems, managing confrontations and overcoming conflicts with a small or a large group. The trainers will outline tools and methodologies the participants can use to effectively express their opinions, build a circle of trust and security and work together to resolve a conflict.

Fear Of Failure

The trainer will introduce concepts of failure and fear to the participants, juxtaposing it with everyday fears and anxiety that one faces at home, the workplace or in other social contexts. The trainer will seek to highlight how in improv, there is no failure or mistakes but only opportunities for something new. Ideas of embracing failure, self-awareness and being mindful about what is “success” will be of prime focus here.

Prevent Burnout

This module focuses on helping participants take a step back, let go of the stress they're carrying and rejuvenate their mind and body through fun games and exercises. Each participant will be led through a journey of self-exploration where they first discover and acknowledge any stress, tension and anxieties they are carrying. They'll be then asked to embrace these anxieties and build a positive relationship with them where they have greater control over it. Lastly, the trainer will show participants effective ways to deal and manage with these anxieties in their personal spaces and communities.

Saying Yes

The trainer will lead the participants through the golden rule of improv “Saying Yes… And” with specific games, exercises and activities to bring out the inherent “no buts” we’re used to hearing in life. The trainer will explore principles of acknowledgement, acceptance and appreciation that comes with saying yes.

Taking Care

The primary focus of this session will be building trust, confidence and compassion in the group towards each other. All activities will reinforce the idea of taking care of each other, the performers, in different scenes, games and how these principles can be applied to real-life by not only being self-aware but also aware of those around us. Partner based scene-work will be a focus.

What Our Partners Say

There was a noticeable difference in how I processed myself around personal as well as professional habitats. I was more aware of my surroundings, acknowledged feedback and started to voice out my opinion to peers.

This workshop paved the way not only for the dialect surrounding my daily routine but also gave a nuanced break to my pent up creative energies.

Even though the workshop could not be finished in its entirety before the lockdown, folks at Kaivalya Plays made sure we were in the game by organising Mental Health workshops, Improv spaces and regular classes on the weekends.

Another experiment we just did at Walmart Global Tech India was an improv theatre workshop! Anchored by Kaivalya Plays, various actors engaged nearly 400 participants virtually into a fun, yet serious, discussion on what mental health really means at work and what we can do to support each other.
