Revels is a culmination of the work put in by people ranging from the Security to the Cafeteria staff, who strive towards providing the students with an unparalleled experience during the fest each year. In this article, The MIT Post takes a look at the colossal efforts put in by these people behind the scenes of the fest.
One of Revels’ most participated events, this year Dramebaaz brought to the stage a large number of budding actors showcasing their theatrical and dramatic skills. Ranging from street plays to mono-acting, as well as mime performances, Dramebaaz covered nearly every realm of theatre—tackling serious issues while also keeping the spirit of comedy
One of Revels’ most anticipated categories, Footloose lived up to the hype with its lineup of events that explored every aspect of dance as an art form. From classical to hip hop and improv to choreographed dances, Footloose had something in store for everybody who likes to shake a leg every time they hear music.
Open Category event Wordsworth presented a mixed bag of activities that catered to those who cherish both—the written and spoken word. Participants got their thinking caps on for an intense round of story-writing, followed by light-hearted game rounds that left the audience in splits of laughter.
Hosting a myriad of literary events and fun-filled activities, Anubhuti, the only category catering to the Hindi populace on campus provided a platform to fire up your creative instincts and test your wits.
A perfect platform for connoisseurs of photography, Lensation provided its participants with a wide variety of events. From technical events like Know Your Camera, to contests even laymen could indulge in and enjoy, like Mobile Photography, Lensation became a treasure trove for shutterbugs on campus.
The Human Library was an event conducted for the first time in Manipal during Revels’19. Looking to provide a platform for real, difficult and unconventional conversations between the ‘readers’ and ‘books’, the event was well received by the students and helped open up topics including prejudices, social exclusion and mental health problems.
The third edition of one of the largest competitions hosted here, The Manipal- Debate Tournament, more popularly known as MIT-DT gave participants a platform to voice their opinions. The event drew a large crowd and witnessed several spirited arguments celebrating the right to free speech.
