The India Theatre Programme
\r\n2nd July - 31st July 2016
The Drama School, Mumbai invites applications from theatre makers, actors, dancers and performance artists for this intensive 4 week training and creation workshop in Pondicherry, India.
\r\nThis immersive residency is for 24 individual practitioners from across the world, seeking to inform and enhance their own personal practice through understanding universal principles of performance as found in three Indian traditional performing art forms. The training will be conducted by nationally recognized masters of these forms, and guided throughout by the award winning ex-director of The National School of Drama, India’s foremost training institution for the dramatic arts.
\r\nIndian dramatic practice dates back to the 1st century BCE, if not earlier, and its fundamental principles have informed performance practices from across the world (such as Grotowski, Stanislavsky, Zarrilli and Schechner to name a just a few).
\r\nThe first three weeks of the programme will be dedicated to training in the various forms and understanding the principles that can be taken into contemporary practice, the final week will be a guided creation exercises designed to assimilate and apply these learnings.
