Workshops for adults and theatre enthusiasts are organized in the month of March. These workshops are held by senior artists for a period of at least one month. Participants immerse themselves into the world of theatre and learn the nuances from experienced artists. Many of Badungduppa’s current members first visited Badungduppa to attend one of these workshops.
Every year, Badunduppa organizes a month-long theatre workshop for children in the nearby villages during the summer holidays. Children are taught the basics of theatre and the workshop culminates in a play performed by children. Education through theatre is an idea integral to these workshops. Children apart from learning about theatre also develop important life skills such as confidence, clear diction, presentation skills and team work. Badungduppa believes that theatre can play an important role in providing holistic education to children.
Under the Sal Tree: Under the Sal Tree is an annual research oriented theatre festival that aims to explore new possibilities in the field of theatre. A brain child of Badungduppa Kalakendra, this popular theatre festival is conducted every year for 3 days from 15th December. About 7-8 plays are selected every year from entries received from several national and international theatre groups.
