INCD,CANADA

TCT represented India at the International Network for Cultural Diversity between 2000 and 2003. INCD is an international network that acts as a counter-force to the growing influence of homogenization caused by globalization in the field of culture.

It is particularly concerned with the constraints created by international financial institutions and trade agreements to cultural policies and cultural protections. In December 2003, TCT organized an international conference on cultural diversities called “Vividha” in Mumbai.

TCT conducts and facilitates workshops that are specific to the requirements of a vast range of clients; performers, business houses, educational institutions and various other organizations. Although various skills and talents are tapped through these workshops, the emphasis is on participation rather than on performance.

Our workshops include tasks that sharpen the use of the participant’s physical and vocal aptitude, mimetic skills, imagination capabilities, group work and character study. The workshops steer participants towards new physical and theatre devising capacities, aiming to create a common creative vocabulary with other participants.

Some of our workshops have included:

  • Specialized theatre workshops for students in various schools & colleges across India
  • Residential dance/drama camp for children conducted in collaboration with Nrityagram, Bangalore
  • Movement based workshop for performers with Artistic Director DUENDE, John Britton, Mumbai
