Testimonials from past participants:

“Aridhi Anderson is a phenomenal director, scriptwriter and a wonderful artist to work with. The activities that take place during the entire build-up is so much fun and helps create the strongest and most positive of bonds between the actors. This workshop is a stress-buster. The experience keeps getting better and bigger every single time. The kind of ideas that the director brings to the table and urges each actor to explore are just so profound and special. Aridhi makes it easy for any level of actor to bring out their best!” – Tejesh S.

“The environment was warm, fun and inclusive. You could be a clown in there and no one would judge you… The one most important thing I have taken away from these classes is – “Level Up”. A mantra that still reverberates within me, irrespective of what I am doing. I am glad I took the leap and joined this workshop. It’s not just some serious ‘acting classes’ but a place to have fun and grow, in every which way.” – Aishwarya P.

“Aridhi not only focuses on technical aspects of improving acting by focusing on voice and projection and understanding our body and its position and role in conveying the character, she also creates an environment where all the actors and actresses feel part of the troupe. A true sense of community and camaraderie developed over the 5 weeks and that for many of us is far more important. It allowed us to support each other as we put ourselves on the line in front of the audience and feel comfortable and non judged by our peers. She is kind and fun to work with and truly loves the interaction with every one of us.” – Nima A.

“Right from the time when it begins till the time we temporarily say goodbye, the journey is always full of excitement, challenges, bonding, care, introspection, love, discovery, friendship, anxiety and self-exploration. These workshops have become platforms for me to explore myself, my body, and my mind. And that is one exhilarating experience. Other than the theatre, the learning also takes place through the exhaustive interaction that takes place between the participants. This workshop and the previous ones have brought me in touch with so many people coming from diverse backgrounds. I cherish both the diversity that happens in these workshops as well as the learning that happens through this diversity.” – Yasir A.

“The Day Dream workshop is dangerous, make no mistake about it. Like a friendly person next door it will encourage you to fulfil a decade-old desire to act on stage and then… it will hook you in, and NEVER LET GO! It will sit inside your creative centre months and months after, making you think about how you’d like to do that again… be prepared to meet a supportive and fun bunch of fellow-actors, many of whom will be first timers, and workshop in a safe environment with a director who knows how to pull the best performance out of you. The studio always accommodates anyone who wants to ‘level up’ their performance and with a director that committed to the process and you, personally, you really have the makings of a long-term addiction.” – Koyel L.

Aridhi’s The Day Dream is one of the most honest things ever I have experienced. Honest: because it lets you be honest to yourself. It doesn’t ask you to pretend, and it doesn’t judge… Aridhi gives me a sense of belonging in a world that is otherwise very chaotic. Her understanding of the art is deep and mindblowingly abstract. It lets you find your own meaning. It challenges your psyche even. But at the end, you feel everything summed up great and you were a part of a journey of many destinations.” – Yashu G.
