New Delhi 08.05.20: As we all are aware about the ongoing nationwide lockdown. National School of Drama has planned an initiative to reach out to every nook & corner of the country who are bound by the peripheries of their domestic arena and not in physical contact with the regular theatre practice.

NSD has curated a specific webinar series not only aimed at theatre practitioner but for all the people who need human and artistic interaction for widening their horizon of experience. In other words: FOR ALL. It has focused not only on theatre history and criticism but also on hands-on training through the digital medium.

A carefully collated series of lectures, lec-dem, master class, interaction with legendary personalities from the field of theatre and other arts and in depth conversation with maestros of Indian theatre. It will not only satiate the hunger for learning of millions at this moment of limited and mediated interaction but also will be a resource material for research and learning.

Interested enthusiasts can join the webinar at also will be live at our official Facebook page

Speaking on the plan to initiate the webinar, Prof. Suresh Sharma, Director In charge, National School of Drama Said “Due to this ongoing pandemic we feel that the artists are feeling very abandoned as they are not getting the chance to perform. Since we all know the act of theatre is all about a working together in a group, but due the ongoing situation this has become impossible. National School of Drama has initiated an online platform where the people who are sitting at home can connect with us and utilize their time to grab the knowledge. This not only will help to enhance their skills but will also be helpful to release some mental tension created by this pandemic.”
