In July 2013, Theatre Professionals founded The Drama School, Mumbai.
The Drama School, Mumbai was born out of an urgent need. Formal, contemporary training in the craft of theatre in India is sorely lacking, in addition opportunities to go abroad and study at centres of dramatic excellence in the Americas, Europe, or the Far East are out of reach for many. The DSM aspires to fill this need here at home, in India.
The DSM’s vision is to two-fold: First, to forge a new generation of actor-creator-entrepreneurs, who will go on in their careers to perform, create and produce work to a new standard of storytelling. The Second, to promote the awareness of theatre and its processes to a wider audience interested in exploring and understanding the medium for themselves.
The Drama School, Mumbai has been made possible, with logistical, financial and administrative support from Theatre Professionals, venue support from The Mumbai Marathi Sahitya Sangh, and most importantly pedagogical support from an amazing collective of highly experienced and trained faculty who strive to turn this into an institution of teaching excellence.
