“Our responsibilities in life kept us away from following our dream to dance and act. We finally got a chance at this age to pursue our dream”
At Actor Prepares we believe that “Age” is not a limiting factor in life. We also believe that you are never too old to learn. The initiative for the workshop for ages 50 + years stems from these beliefs. We wanted to provide a medium for all individuals above 50 years to reinvent themselves not only as an actor but also as a personality. We wanted to prove and reaffirm the statement that “Life starts at 50!”
This unique workshop for ages 50+ was held over a period of two days with registrations from men and women across the city. The workshop began with the participants warming up in a dance session conducted by a professional choreographer. Following the dance activity, multiple acting exercises were conducted by Actor Prepares faculty on the first day. This gave the participants an idea about the Basics of Acting, Facing the Camera, Body Language and Emotions. At the end of day one, the participants were handed out individual scenes which they were to prepare for their performance on the next day.
The second day of the workshop started with acting exercises where the participants were asked to apply the basics of acting taught on the first day. The final exercise on the second day was to enact a scene individually, which each performed in their own unique style. This was video recorded and shared with them so that they could show this achievement to their family and friends. The course culminated with each of them being awarded participation certificates.
The highlight of this workshop was the gratitude received from these participants. Many participants emotionally expressed their experience in the workshop and were thankful for being given a chance to re-live an age old dream of being a performer. There are so many people seeking an opportunity to fulfill their dreams, ones they could not pursue till now and to do something fun and challenging, to REINVENT their lives and not be defined by a number called AGE.
