Theatre integral to better learning
Karachi: The arrival of Dr Kanta Kochhar Lindgren as the first US cultural envoy to the city heralded the return towards developing cultural diplomacy between US and Pakistan after a period of 30 years.
"It is a double honour, first to be in Pakistan and then to be able to interact with the people here," Lindgren said. "I think that theatre and dance are integral to better learning. Having said that, theatre is a means for increasing the level of empathy in society, while arts help a person go deeper into an academic subject and get a better understanding of whatever he or she is learning via the tool of role-play," she said.
Lindgren said that she arrived in Pakisatn to work with a local theatre group, Thespianz Theatre, on a play titled 'Water', which depicted the worth of water in the arid centres of Sindh. The play was staged on October 4 and October 5 at the Pakistan American Cultural Centre (PACC), and made for interesting viewing.
The professor was initially invited by Faisal Malik to be part of a collaborative project with Thespianz Theatre, but she had to assume the responsibility of a representative of the United States soon after her arrival.
An associate professor in the department of Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences at the University of Washington, Dr Kochhar Lindgren has been conducting workshops on performing arts at the National Academy of Performing Arts, the Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture, the American School and the ABSA School for the hearing impaired. In her workshops, Dr Kochhar teaches the students about dance techniques and performance styles.
Lindgren observed that the arts field was struggling in the US as well, and said that while for some forms of art it is essential to maintain an apprentice form of learning, it was also possible to simulate apprenticeship in a university environment. "Each of us (Science and Arts) has parts of the answer, and we need to bring them together," she said.
Having had an enriching experience while working with theatre and dance performers in the city, she concluded that there was a need for greater collaboration and more partnerships between universities in the United States and Pakistan. "From what the people here have told me, they need more opportunities to work and learn about different theatre practices".
Though her short trip would end soon, she hopes to be back someday to work with the students at ABSA School, and with the teachers of public school to make a production and impart training in the art of theatrics. The news
