I am Kavitha Sudharshan, a professional theatre artist based in Chennai (India). I am doing this fundraiser for my higher studies. Since my very childhood, I was nudged to showcase my skills on the stage, growing up that drive became more determined by me being introduced to theatre. My aspirations in this field have also skyrocketed with me wanting to achieve mystical heights and earn my own name in this field.
After completing my undergraduation, I pursued Master of Social Work in Human Resource (MSW-HR), from Madras School of Social Work owing to my inclination towards Sociology and HRM. Following that, I was working as Senior HR Executive in Corporate company . Following my years of practice at HRM, I realised my second inclination towards theatrics. Hence, I resigned my job and went on to pursue my passion full time, starting with a three months acting course at Na Muthusamy ’s Koothuppattrai, Chennai.
Later I worked with different Theatre Directors in 10 Theatrical productions, and I fell in awe with my mentor’s skills and in-depth knowledge about theatrics. Therefore, I applied and pursued one-year acting course at National School of Drama (Bengaluru) – one of the India’s most revered drama schools. There, I learnt from some of the best minds in the industry through active involvement in plays and workshops. Since then, I have gained more than 4 years of intensive experience working in theatre as an Artist, Stage Manager and Assistant Director.
Also I particpated in National level Theatre workshops namely Physical theatre workshop conducted by French Theatre Director Ariane Mnouchkine in January 2018 at Indianostrum - Pondichery, Performance Making Workshop conducted by NSD Delhi in March 2019 in Tumari - Karnataka and Yakshagana workshop conducted by Guruji Sanjeeva Suvarna in Feb 2021 at Yakshagana Kendra,Udupi-Karnataka.
I firmly believe that getting a higher qualification that too from an international school would accentuate my chances of landing with greater opportunities and improving my artistic network. Hence I applied and got accepted for MA Device Theatre & Performance course by London's Rosebruford Drama College of Theatre & Performance.The study centre is at ARTHAUS Berlin. Tuition Fee is £16,250 (INR Rs.16,45,908/-)
I'm one of the 14 people who got selected for the course from across the world. Considering my financial state, I'm trying to get support from people I know and any help from your end in your possible way would be of huge support. I'd be very happy if you can spread the word to someone you know who can afford to.
I have attached my offer letter for the reference. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please do support for my Theatre studies and spread the word.
