Summer Theatre Workshops for Children with Kaivalya Plays

In-Person in Delhi: Starts Monday, 30th May onwards.

About The Workshop

Our summer workshops for children uses the medium of theatre to introduce young minds to the importance of listening, collaboration, and leadership. The sessions will foster a nurturing environment to encourage the participants to bring their imagination and creativity to create stories, characters and gain confidence in their own abilities in a safe and fun environment.

There is an emphasis on storytelling. Using games and exercises in drama, drama, arts and crafts, and even furniture and found objects, children explore stories they already know, as well as stories they make up in the workshop process. The workshop hopes to be a place that gives children space to explore stories playfully and instinctively, for the sheer joy of doing so. And, in the process, learn more about themselves and the world they live in. Finally, friends and family are invited to the final session to experience how the children's own performances come to life.

We have two batches of workshops available for different age groups:
