It was an outstanding experience performing at Scrap-yard with the support of team of Indie Productions. We have seen their progress in every department across the time.
- Manoj ShahFounder, Director – Ideas Unlimited
It was an absolute pleasure to have worked with the Indie Productions team in delivering a part of a course at IIM Ahmedabad. The team was very professional. They were very talented and willing to take on the challenge of doing something they had never done before. The best thing about them was that they were very responsive to our needs and able to work with a disparate group. They were great at improvising too.
- Prof. Neharika VohraIIMA
The actors were totally into the character and could easily portray the dimensions that a script demanded. I was so intrigued by the subject and the performances that I organized one special show for the Educators of my school on a Teacher's day. It was a wonderful experience to host the team of Indie Production on our school campus. They were a bunch of talented people who were extremely cooperative, accommodating, and polite.
- Minal Desai MasterNi – GGIS
Pratham and Indie production have always been in close association. It was last year during the four days of English Access Program, Immersion Camp; we had Indie production mentor our students to few theatre acts for six hours. The scaffolding and necessary mentoring were provided, with lots of engagement and catering to the interest of the students. The students enjoyed the whole process and the results were very much seen in all the areas of theatre, right from voice modulation to body language and confidence building.
- Pooja Chettri Coordinator – Pratham Engish Access
Our association with Indie Productions since 2 years/editions now that also includes “Prayogshala” which was utilized for theatre rehearsals for 60 constant days has been a fruitful collaboration with a team that has a never say never attitude of each team member & is always ready to take up challenges with the deepest connect with the clients aspirations on all fronts and prove to be excellent show runners. Right from helping fresh artists understand their technical Ryder, suggest artist what could be the best possible and economic technical requirement that would bring out performances impactfully, to make available minutest detailed stage prop mentioned by mentors/senior performers, this team has done all within no time once a phone call goes to any of them from our team.

The themes that Indie team came up with were excellent - the activities that they did during the orientation helped participants align with the organization's values and culture. After initial one program, we did a series of theatre-based orientation events and every single time, energy level of the Indie trainers was amazing!
