The Tejaswi Foundation was
formed on January 13, 1994 in Chennai India. The intention
was to apply theatre techniques to help people
overcome stress in different life-situations.
In pursuit of this concept, Tejaswi designed many self
development programmes, employing theatre with the natural
techniques of drama, as the methodology for self exploration
and self expression.
India has seen many changes in the last two decades of the
twentieth century. Management trainers were seeking
innovative ways to help people overcome stress and manage
their time better. But they did not easily
find methods that were not stressful in themselves and yet
were effective. That's when they turned to theatre for
methodologies. Role play became very popular.
Tejaswi looks back on the experience of being one of the
early users of theatre, in this direction. Tejaswi's success
hinged on the use of theatre with therapies in the Alternate
Sciences, like Ayurveda, Homoeopathy, Energy Healing,
together with music, dance and craft. Tejaswi consults and
involves qualified specialists to achieve its customised
designs for people development, as and when required.
We invite young people to form working groups. who would
like to give their time and effort, to pursue the objectives
of the Trust.
Today, Tejaswi's objective is to help people overcome
stressful situations in their lives be means of applied
now, Tejaswi advocates that young people especially, be
proactive and constructive, as the only way of successfully
handling challenges in a multi-connected world. Tejaswi also
advocates that the senior population stays involved and
actively contribute to the young world, from their
experience and wisdom. As such, Tejaswi's programmes involve
all the generations.
Tejaswi's primary objective in 2011 is our new design for
Theatre in Education (PROJECT TIE).
