I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.

Would you like to tell your tale, or sing like nightingale? Caper about, or act it out? Shake a leg, or manage backstage? Pick one, pick all, because theatre is a wonderful medium to express yourself – in multifarious ways. By incorporating literature, dance, music, and fine arts, among many others, theatre serves an all-encompassing art form to channelize your creativity.

 

‘Elephants in Pink Pajamas’ is a theatre & stage arts programme that is of the children, by the children, and for the children. Its genesis stemmed from the thought that children have been cooped up in homes all through the COVID times, and have missed out on social interactions the most. What better way to bring some semblance of normalcy into their lives, than through theatre? Not only does theatre give children the freedom of expression that is vital to building their creativity and self-confidence, but also it balances both the left and the right sides of the brain. Most importantly, it allows children to learn by doing, rather than by seeing, hearing, or reading alone.

 

After two successful seasons, EIPP is back with season 3. In this 24-session intensive programme, the prime focus will be on skill-building, followed by mini plays that will give children the much needed opportunity of showcasing their talents. Kids will interact with different experts to understand the basics of theatre, different forms of theatre, and ways of expressions. They will then create a mini performance using their imagination and creative skills.

1. What resources will I need to bring for this programme?

Happy minds and an eager self. The rest will be provided by The Hive.

2. What will be the form of the final performance?

The training programme will culminate into a mini performance that will be created by the children themselves. Apart from acting, children will get a 360-degree exposure to theatre by helping in direction, stage design, costume designing, scripting and participating in backstage management. The idea of the performance is to boost children's enthusiasm, help them work in teams, and towards a goal. 

3. What areas of arts will my child get exposure to?

All participants will be a part of the fine & performing arts covered in the programme, such as acting, dance, stage design, costume design, or prop making. The exact assignment for each child will be determined by their mentors based on the child's aptitude and abilities.

4. What safety precautions will be taken at The Hive?​

We will be working in small groups. Our instructors and staff are fully vaccinated. Masks are recommended when indoors or within close proximity. However, the participants are responsible for their own health & safety.
