Shernaz Patel Presents ‘Theatre Ink’

Much to the joy of theatre lovers, the talented and acclaimed theatre and film actor and personality, Shernaz Patel, presents ‘Theatre Ink’ – a fabulous theatre blog, aimed at creating a space to share, discover, educate and most importantly, feel the human connection that bonds both – theatre practitioners and theatre audiences. Supported by Aadyam (an Aditya Birla Group initiative), ‘Theatre Ink’ will be edited by Shernaz herself, who writes in, “With the bombardment of online entertainment and the hundreds of options available – talks, discussions, workshops and of course performances, it’s actually been really calming to focus primarily on the written word.”

‘Theatre Ink’ offers a great platform for all theatre enthusiasts to participate and also get their shows promoted. “I’d really like Theatre Ink to be a space that’s open to everyone. So if you would like to write for us (written, video and audio content) or have a fabulous show coming up that you’d like us to mention PT preview; if you would like to know more about a particular aspect of theatre or have a question that you need a professional to answer; or if you would just like to give suggestions…even criticism, we are open to everything!” says Shernaz.

Over the past month, Theatre Ink has featured: articles by theatre practitioners and journalists – Sukant Goel, Ashish Vidyarthi, Vivek Madan, Meherzad Patel, Snigdha Hasan, Arghya Lahiri, Aseem Hattangady, Rahul da Cunha, Puja Sarup; An ongoing video make-up tutorial by Aneesa Uberoi that makes complicated make-up easy to accomplish; A ‘Dear Aadyam’ column with your questions answered in depth by theatre professionals  including Kathryn Doshi, Tanvi Shah, Anupama Chandrasekhar, Prerna Chawla, Trishla Patel; A heart-warming weekly ‘Humans-of-Theatre’ story, written by Reema Sunil, which gives a glimpse into a range of theatre lives, both known and unknown.

One of highlights is a fun interview with Neil Bhoopalam, where, instead of a journalist, he’s being grilled by a line-up of co-actors and directors! Ever week, Theatre Ink sifts through what’s on and give you a listing of workshops, performances and opportunities – both within India and overseas; and they also have previews and some fun nuggets of theatre trivia.
