Students of the Media Studies Department of the Bahria University’s Karachi campus organised a three-day workshop with Napa in collaboration with ZAHRSSS at the university premises to train aspiring actors from the institute and provide them basic tricks of the trade.

‘Revue’, as the workshop was titled, registered 25 students who gave time after classes to learn from the mentor, Zakiullah Khan, who has been doing theatre for around a decade now and is a professional at improvisational theatre.

During the workshop, his focus remained on different exercises to polish the skills of the students by engaging them in various activities. A series of activities were assigned to the groups of students and they prepared skits on various issues from education to water shortage to the crisis of the media industry.

These performances highlighted the talent amongst the students and brought forth the cream who got the encouragement to go towards professional acting. This exercise not just highlighted the actors but also helped recognise the director or writers amongst the group by focusing on the talent of each individual.

Zakiullah Khan assembled these 25 students in groups and will help them prepare a 10-minute short play to be staged in front of their university by the end of the month at the university’s auditorium.
