This was the fourth workshop session & the second as a semester-long once-a-week elective at CEPT. The first round had created a good buzz about the workshop, leading to more than forty applicants for the elective. Not only did I have to unkindly shortlist the participants to only the apparently open students, but I also had to run the elective in two parallel batches. Both batches came together to create a vast city collage for the concluding session of the elective.
The engagement being once a week, I didn’t explore much in terms of theater. Not only did the participants have limited theater skills, I too was ill equipped as a tutor for short & far-spaced sessions in drama. I relied more on my skills in visual mediums to initiate sessions & sustain the intensity of participants’ engagement through each session. While some wonderful drawings were created for the twilight & mapping exercises, the individual collages bringing together archaeology & site are among the best over the years.
