Acting Classes in Kolkata with Renowned Coach from Mumbai

The National Academy of Media and Events (NAME) has always focused on a holistic development of their students. Time and again they have arranged for courses and workshops which impart various different skills to the students. Many of these workshops and short certificate courses are open to the public as well. The Academy has teamed up, for the first time, with Saurabh Sachdeva from The Actor’s Truth to conduct a special theatre workshop in Kolkata. Scheduled to be held from the 2nd to the 8th of January 2018, this workshop is expected to impart the participants with knowledge about acting skills, expressing emotions, using the body as an articulate medium of communication of thoughts and various other relevant techniques in the field of theatre.



Saurabh has an experience in the field of theatre and acting for the past seventeen years. He has trained and taught at the Barry John Institute. He has mentored also various celebrities like Varun Dhawan, Frieda Pinto, Jacqueline Fernandez, Vani Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor, Richa Chadda, HarshvardhanRane, Rana Daggubati and many more from the Indian film industry. He has also been credited for directing and acting in numerous plays in Delhi and Mumbai.  Over a course of time, he has developed selective modules of acting techniques which sets him apart from other theatre practitioners. He stresses on the sense of being which revolves around self- identification of an individual through the five sensory organs. According to Saurabh, “Connection to each other and understanding your being’’ is the basis of the theatre workshop that he would be conducting in Kolkata. He believes that a “flexible body, powerful voice and free emotional life” are essential qualities of an actor; and concentrates on voice training as much as he deliberates upon physical and emotional training of an individual for theatre. Some of the techniques that the participants will get to learn during this workshop include Sense of Being by ‘Eric Morris’, Awareness and Movement, Finding Your Voice, The Stephen Book Technique and Auditioning.


SnehaMaloo, Brand Head of The National Academy of Media and Events, says, “We are very excited to bring a seasoned coach like Saurabh Sir to Kolkata. I have myself experienced his workshop. It is a must do for not just beginners but any actor , as it will help them discover themselves in new ways like never before.“  Theatre is a field where one has to let go of all consciousness and become one with the character. This requires training and constant upgradation of techniques. Theatre is a field where one must focus on the intricacies of the physical and emotional portrayal of oneself. Saurabh opines, “I’m expecting that the students should be committed and open to explore themselves fully. “

The National Academy of Media and Events provides a once in a lifetime opportunity for theatre lovers to learn from an experienced actor and mentor like Saurabh Sachdeva. This workshop is a platform given to theatre lovers to enhance their skills. The Academy would give the participants an occasion to showcase the skills learnt in this workshop through organising plays and curating the play during their annual social initiative Pehchaan- a grassroots talent hunt. The participants would also be connected to casting organisations in Mumbai, to be able to try their luck in getting a break in the City of Dreams.
