Prachyanat School of Acting and Design
Prachyanat School of Acting and Design is probably the most significant contribution of this theatre troupe in building up an institutional framework towards the study of fine arts in general and theatre arts in particular. The school was established in July 2001. Interestingly, this young theatre group pioneered the idea of short course in such areas with emphasis on both theoretical and practical aspects.
Mentioned in the annual publication of the International Theatre Institute (ITI), the school is only second of its kind in Bangladesh to offer such course outside the framework of the university level graduation courses.
Nevertheless, Prachyanat School of Acting and Design has been able to earn distinction by incorporating in its curriculum such diverse aspects of theatre activity as ? history of theatre, theory and practice of acting and stage and costume design. The idea behind setting up the school was to pick up new talents for theatre who would be able to take the opportunities of this constantly changing art form. Another reason why we took up the idea was that we wanted to install professionalism in theatre, which is often heard of but seldom practiced. Prominent theatre activists, personalities, and teachers of various universities, and alternative film-makers regularly take classes side by side with the experienced trainers of Prachyanat.
