The Pomegranate Workshop

Creative Energies At Work

Y-Impact Theatre Mentorship (Humour)

In 2016 Pomegranate's student production Antigone 2.0 was in the top 10 theatre picks for the year by the Mumbai Theatre Guide.

· In 2017 the mentorship production, Mad or What, was staged at The Cuckoo Club

· Over 10 shows by Pomegranate staged across the city including NCPA, G5A (Mahalakshmi) and Sitara Studio (Lower Parel)

 The Pomegranate Workshop presents a unique mentoring opportunity for young adults to develop the skills and artistic experience to evolve as theatre artists specializing in humour. The Y-IMPACT Project is an intensive mentorship-based program where the mentees leverage their own artistic interests and skills to emerge with a body of work of their own which Pomegranate will then enable them to showcase/perform to a public audience.

Participants will be introduced to various kinds of humour like stand-up, cross-talk, ensemble, comedic sketches, song and music parodies, mime-clown-buffoonery and genres like satire, parody, absurdist, farce, self-deprecating and dark humour.

 They will then work with the mentor on selected styles and organically create their very own performance pieces that they pick to explore in detail.

At the end of the mentorship the mentees will have created their very own humour based performance that Pomegranate will showcase as a public event.
