The English play “Both Sit in Silence for a While” and a training workshop by a German company continued to be the highlights of the current Pakistan Theatre Festival on Saturday.
The performance, which was directed by Kanwal Khost, was performed by talented theatre performers. Famous actors Ali Junejo from the Pakistani film “Joyland” and Rasti Farooq demonstrated outstanding acting abilities as a husband and wife who are about to divorce.
“It became possible after so many years that we are getting an opportunity to watch international dramas,” Famous artist Sania Saeed said on this occasion.
She said that the series of workshops from different countries such as those conducted by the German and American Theatre group should also be part of these events.
It is very important for an artist that we continue to benefit from their experience, she added.
Besides, the play training workshop “A Physical Introduction” was organised at Haseena Moin Hall by the German group participating in the festival.
German theatre experts Marie Lena Kaiser and Daniel Matheus showed their passion for acting and taught different subjects to the students. Theatre instructors taught the workshop participants how to act with only expressions and body movements without dialogue.
