Doing intracultural theatre

The Tamasha theatre company in London has developed a theatre practice that focuses on the cultural identity of the actors. Their practice is about drawing out the specific world (culture, language, etc.) that the actors enjoy bringing into the working process, whether it’s beat box, a Bollywood dialogue, another language, or a dance routine. For Tamasha, anything the actors want to bring into the process can be used as a tool to help them find a way to be open in the creative working process and—as a consequence of being open—find the pleasure to play.
