Enemy worshippers

For the soldier who sheds his life from chest

To uphold the dignity of motherland

Heinous beings abusing without garlanding them

Should be the ones to be exiled first

Meeting was attended by:

Shri B N Tiwari President – FWICE

Shri Gangeshwar Srivastav Treasurer – FWICE

Shri Manoj Joshi Sr Vice President – CINTAA

Shri Amit Behl Sr Joint Secretary – CINTAA

Ms Rajeshwari Sachdev Joint Secretary – CINTAA

Shri Rashid Mehta EC Member – CINTAA

Shri Sanjay Bhatia EC Member – CINTAA

Shri Ayub Khan EC Member – CINTAA

The decision to come out with a press release had to be taken as many of the grievances on working conditions/ payment terms/ duty hours which were submitted to the Producers association through series of joint meetings and communications earlier did not result in any positive reverts from them. There is still uncertainty looming large.

Though we have always assured our best support to them they have not taken our concurrence on many issues resulting in lack of clarity and confusions. Many producers are taking unilateral steps of calling our members for shoot, this has only created a feeling of unrest and misguidance amongst the members, even before resumptions of shoot.

FWICE and CINTAA which has scores of members enrolled in the cadres of Actors, Technicians & Workers need immediate changes implemented in the working system/payment terms before any resumption of shoots.

Post COVID-19 the working system would change for all with probable health challenges and drop in immunity levels hence it is all the more important that all our concerns are suitably addressed.

It is highly regretted to note that even after the strict directives issued by the I & B ministry to all the producers to clear the outstanding dues of the actors, workers and technicians pending prior to the announcement of the lockdown by the Government amidst the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Producers have still not cleared the outstanding dues of our members. All the outstanding dues of our members should be cleared prior to the resumption of the shootings.

Shift hours. Strictly to be 8 hours per day.

#Payments to daily paid actors/ technicians/ workers has to be settledv end of the day.

#All contractual employees have to be paid in 30 days.

#Conveyance has to be settled end of the dayv

#Mandatory weekly holiday

#Adherence to stringent health and safety protocols as per directives ofv the Government.

#Insurance: Healthv & Life Insurance with Covid-19 specific coverage. We demand a 50-lac cover for actors / workers /technicians who succumb to death.

#No pay cuts/discounts will be agreed by Actors/ workers /techniciansv post resuming to work.

#No actor/ technicians/ workers would be replaced for refusing givingv discounts on their emoluments.

#Deployment of a well-equipped ambulance along with a Paramedicalv staff (Nurse) and a Doctor at the location

#All the above-mentioned issues have to be resolved first so that there is complete clarity to all, be it actors/ workers or technicians.

 No one can risk the lives of human resources and for us at FWICE AND CINTAA certainly not.

Quarantea Time With Coconut Theatre!

Posted by on Jun 25, 2020 in Breaking News | Comments Off on Quarantea Time With Coconut Theatre!

Coconut Theatre’s Chai-Wai and Rangmanch took up a rather ambitious project during COVID-19. It has been bringing together several award-winning playwrights, directors, actors and technicians and provided students of theatre an opportunity to learn from their seniors through their Facebook Live sessions. Currently, global experts have been added to Coconut Theatre’s repertoire with the coming week seeing Writer-Director David Woods from Australia (22nd June), Actor-Director Glenn Hayden, also from Australia (25th June), Writer-Director Ana Cândida Carneiro from the USA (27th June) and Writer-Director Jeff Baron from the USA (30th June).
“The objective is to provide students of theatre an avenue of learning,” share Rashmin Majithia and and Keyur Sheth of Coconut Theatre.”Of the varied sessions numbering nearly 99, the viewer can choose any.” The 30-minute sessions where the veterans share their craft begin at 6 pm on weekdays and there are two on weekends; 5 pm and 6 pm. Stalwart participants include Makarand Deshpande, Nadira Babbar, Nina Kulkarni, Jayati Bhatia, Himani Shivpuri, Suchitra Pillai, KK Raina and many more.
Ace choreographer Jonathan Hollander from the US, the founder of Battery Dance Company, who has educated students in multiple countries across multiple platforms brought the stage alive on June 18th.
Those who have missed him should not miss David Woods, an acclaimed actor, director and playwright from Australia who is also the co-artistic director of Ridiculusmus, a multi-award-winning theatre company that has been producing seriously funny theatre for over 20 years. He will be the mentor du jour on the 22nd of June.


A similarly seasoned veteran is Glenn Hayden, also from Australia, who is a theatre director and arts facilitator with a 36+ year professional life in the performing arts, who is gracing our screens on June 25th, followed by Ana Cândida Carneiro, an award-winning, published playwright from the USA, on the 27th and Jeff Baron, an American novelist, playwright and screenwriter from the USA on the 30th of June.
“The idea was to revive theatre in our own small way as COVID-19 has brought with it a new normal that is not going away anytime soon,” concludes Keyur Sheth.
