“The theatre itself is not revolutionary: it is a rehearsal for the revolution.” -Augusto Boal

Booming voices, loud actions and a vibrant medley of movements. When they speak, the crowd listens in awestruck silence! These are the characteristics of an actor.
And so, once again, SIBM Bengaluru gives all the actors an opportunity, to come and compete it out. Let your dialogues echo the unheard and actions reflect the unseen. Showcase your talent and compete with the finest of teams, all the while besetting the winds of change for the society!
Be ready to sweat it out and put on a show. Be ready to make people think. Be ready, to revive and relive the ancient culture of street plays from the heart & soul of India.
So raise your voices to drown the murmurs. Get set to synchronize with your teams to shout, to clap, to cry, to laugh.....to act!
Get ready, for "Tamashaa"
