Note: The skit is to be of 3 minutes and can extend to a maximum of 5 min. and should include all major points. You can use the projector to create the mood by projecting images to create the relevant back ground or show images which are pertaining to the script. The script and images along with a one page summary of your understanding are to be submitted as one folder (named as per the philosopher) in a combined class CD. You should use props to reflect the character and the time. All the groups are of two students. You could use one or two more characters apart from yourselves but the challenge is actually in doing it in the group of two by playing more than one character. You could also use placards to point out at the most important words/ thoughts related with the theory. Use of light and a special arrangement of space is your choice! Make sure you have the support system for changing background, light and spatial arrangements until unless that too is integrated with the action pertaining to the script. Absentees from any group will be marked zero. Submission of script: 28th March 2011 for Section A and 29th March 2011 for Section B. The Skit- The Day of Rasa- of pure aesthetic delight: 5th April 2011 for both Sections from 2:00pm onwards. Please note that the date 5th April 2011 is tentative. Shall be confirmed soon.
