Prateek’s first performance in Australia was in a short comedy play, Love Tangents, at Crash Test Drama in October 2019, which incidentally won first prize and went on to the finals of the event. Later that year, he acted in a short film She’s Inside, and then played the lead role in a 10-minute play at Short and Sweet Theatre Festival in Sydney in March 2020, just before the pandemic hit.
At the Hub, Prateek has diligently absorbed and put into practice the ideas and techniques from the skilled coaches, be it Voice, Movement, Improv, Film or Theatre. He was particularly fascinated by Kevin Jackson’s ‘Creative Habit’ which he put into practice immediately during Imara Savage’s partnered scene work in Term 3.
Prior to the Hub’s Ensemble course, Prateek has done a short course from the Howard Fine Acting Studio, and studied the Meisner technique at the Actor’s Pulse and then at Dramatech.
Prateek has had a varied career before starting his acting journey. He has worked as a journalist, programmer, done odd jobs as well and currently works in a major bank. Prateek believes this exposure positions him to play a variety of interesting characters.
Born in India, Prateek can speak four languages fluently, including English. He is also an intermediate level classical guitarist.
Prateek wants to play lead or supporting roles in film, primarily. He is also interested in all things Shakespeare and would like to perform the Bard on stage in future.
