An actor has the charismatic ability to bridge the seemingly unbridgeable void between the reel and real life. If you have a flair for acting then Monoact is an appropriate place for the actor hailing inside of you. If you have the capability to invoke emotions in audience single handedly, then grab this opportunity to showcase your talent. Let your imagination run astray and let your acting skill amaze us!!

So the timer is set, listen to your calling, this Saptrang’16 welcomes aspiring music supernovae to sing your hearts out, in our very own Aaroh; the Indian solo-singing competition.

“Heav’n has no rage like love to hatred turn’d /Nor Hell a fury, like”, a dancer prohibited from tapping his feet.
Tango is a fiery, distinctive dance form originated in the late 19th century from Latin American Spanish. Apart from the history, it’s about the symmetry, the chemistry, the complex footwork enhanced with gymnastic kicks and drops. Performed by two people, Tango demands lucid synchronization and swift movements. Brace yourselves to stun and be stunned. Mark it in your calendar, Two for a Tango may give you more than what you may have expected.
Art is an artist’s language. It is a wild canvas with crazy, out of the box doodles, the outrageous humor in newspaper columns.

This theme based Painting event is an opportunity for all the wallflowers to fill the gallery with the aroma of their dreams and fictional fandom. Participate and show us what you’re made of and inspire us!
Street Play (Goonj):
Simplicity is the best way to bring out your thoughts. But in this never stopping era, nobody has that taste to watch anything which is just simple enough. If you think that you have that magnetizing ability to make the audience stay and watch your performance, then come and vent out those hidden emotions with simple costumes and props, with little or no amplification of sounds, and with actors relying only on their natural vocal and physical abilities. Goonj is the place to be!
“Blank walls are a shared canvas and we're all artists.” Graffiti is a way of defining what our generation is like. It is nothing but Painting, scribbling and writing on walls. It is an artistic way of representing a society and culture. So if you’re up for some fun, Painting and voicing your ideas through art; come give graffiti a go! Saptrang’16 will be providing a canvas to the participants to showcase their artistic hands.
Short Film Making:
If it can be written or thought, it can be filmed. Film making is the art of capturing little moments and weaving a story from it. It truly is a miracle of collaboration and art! So what are you waiting for? Participants will have to make a short film on a given topic and theme. Just grab your camera and get ready to shoot your film! By making the most of limited resources and acting with your friends, this individual event is definitely not to be missed for those who are willing to capture the essence of life in a film.
