PA-1011 The Body in Motion: Preparing for Movement in Performance

Taught by Abhinaya Penneswaran

The course will explore some questions related to the performing body. What are the various ways in which a moving body is perceived? How to nourish and nudge the impulses and curiosities of a body in view? Who is the body communicating with? How to equip the body with tools to communicate effectively?

We will try to find tangible answers specific to the individual performer through familiarisation with different movement and somatic practices- yoga, bharathanatyam, breath work, free movement improvisation- and learn how to make one’s body available in performance.

Students do not require prior training in any form of dance and movement to enrol in this course.
