Performing Arts Aesthetics

The traditional system of Indian aesthetics based on the theory of rasa is the main base for study and work in this course. The concepts will be directly applied to the creation of a single or a series of several performance piece(s), working with scenes from various Sanskrit* dramas. Honing the body as an instrument of expressive communication through text and movement, the course is both practical and discursive.

*the medium is English, with a few Sanskrit words used for understanding concepts in the theory portions and as dramatic devices in the performance pieces.
