The Ariels

Named after Ariel, the shape-shifting spirit in Shakespeare’s  Tempest , the English Theatre Society of Miranda House The Ariels too has seen many avatars.  The society’s productions are known for their contemporary often gender based content and innovative techniques.  Recent examples include a reinterpretation of Macbeth, Three Tall Women,  Stop Kiss. The Society offers students an opportunity to learn and develop skills in acting, direction, stage and costume design, lights and sound, through workshops with experienced theatre artistes. All Ariels productions are directed by students. The Society encourages experimentation, innovation    and creativity in the form of original scripts, reinterpreting classical texts (Shakespeare’s Macbeth) transforming novels into plays ( Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s Chronicle of a Death Foretold).  Selected for the last two consecutive editions, 2019 and 2020, of the very prestigious annual Old World Hospitality Inter-Collegiate Theatre Festival, vouches for the quality of their work. The challenge posed by the pandemic and the total shift to a  digital platform has meant greater innovation. Students have produced original pieces with characters performing synchronically on-line from different locations. The annual theatre competition Vaudeville continued uninterrupted online. We look foreward to the return to the physical platform, enriched with the experience of digitalized theatre.
