The Drama School, Mumbai (DSM)

The Foundation supports talented theatre professionals at the Drama School in Mumbai.

The Drama School Mumbai was founded in 2013 to forge a new generation of theatre-makers; actor-creator-entrepreneurs professionally trained to perform and create work to a higher global standard of storytelling. Their alumni are all highly active – founding theatre groups, acting in award-winning plays, ​working in films as well as applying their craft in education and corporate-training.

They have accomplished this by assembling a faculty comprising of the best theatre practitioners; actors, playwrights, directors, theatre designers and producers, all of whom have formal training in the theatre arts or a vast body of work behind them. They have come together, to create a curriculum made from best practices of institutions from the world over, to teach students the pursuit of creative excellence through a working culture characterized by rigour, self-motivation and professionalism.

The Drama School Mumbai also works to promote the awareness of theatre and its processes to a wider audience interested in exploring and understanding the medium for themselves through shorter workshops, lectures, and regular presentations of work created by the students and faculty.
