Option 4: we can also all get together and plan a group cooking. At least once in a week and have some time to experience food from various countries.

We find it hard to organize food which suits everyone's needs so we thought its better to keep it open for participants to decide and the food is NOT covered in the course fees.

We will have a meeting on the first day of the course where we decide for each week and everyone has an option of choosing what kind of food they like to have and plan according to that.


IMPORTANT: We don't offer fancy staying, very basic and sharing rooms with friends,  IF you don't like sharing room, kitchen and Space .  then this course is not for you, we like to work in a very respectful and peaceful atmosphere. we help and support each other through mutual respect and  communication, This is a space for collaboration and meeting point between artists to get to know each other  and create works. please come with open mind, share your knowledge , learn, respect , create and carry valuable moments home.

NOTE:  Play Practice Residency is a non profit organization running from past 5 years without any support and funding, All the finances are invested on the studio renovation , electric bills, water and teachers fees. we are trying our best to create artistic community through organizing events and projects but have not reached the place where we can support artists financially but we are on the way. We would like so much if you support this project and give valuable feedback to sustain and move forward with our goal of creating artistic community in Bangalore.

Play Practice Apprenticeship Program is a great opportunity for performance artists to be involved in a international residential program, focused on physical training and artistic research development. During the 3 weeks program artists have the chance to refine their contemporary dance technique through daily morning classes with international teachers, while participating in three intensive workshops (one per week), each centered on different methodologies of improvisation and choreographic composition. Such workshops offer the possibility to approach different practices, receive new stimuli, develop your own creativity and learn from the direct contact with internationally experienced choreographers. The apprenticeship is not meant to be only an educational program: all students are invited to deepen their own practice, taking advance of the 3 weeks as a period of reflection and research through practice, receiving artistic support from the teachers and from the whole group. Collaborations amongst students are encouraged, as well as the possibility to share the results of the 3 weeks investigation in the form of a performance at the end of the program.
