The Society of Poets under the Dept. of English conducted a Poetry Workshop on July 29, 2016, in association with the Airplane Poetry Movement. The workshop, coordinated by the Dept. of English, was held in Mini Auditorium II. The event which started at 10:30 AM was the first of its kind to be hosted in Kristu Jayanti College. The programme was administered by co-founders of the Airplane Poetry Movement, Nandini Varma and Shantanu Anand. Slam poetry according to Shantanu Anand, is a written work to be performed on stage. They tackled the issue of stage fright and brought out the depth of slam poetry by providing five useful tips which are; the five second rule of doing nothing, keeping your feet still, making meaningful eye contact, enunciate each and every word and finally giving meaningful pauses while ending the poem. Activities conducted brought out the inner poets on the stage. As an example of poetry slam, Shantanu Anand astounded the audience with his own poem, "Cynicism in Salesman".
The Erudite Club of Department of English, Kristu Jayanti College organised a three day theatre workshop from 21 to 24 August 2013. The workshop was conducted by Mr. Prasad, a professional dramatist, closely associated with Ranga Shankara, a well-known theatre at Bangalore. Mr. Prasad made the students understand that drama is not merely the enactment of a story, but the involvement of the audience in the story and making them feel that they are a part of that story.
