Participants were invited to you to explore various Sanskrit theatrical concepts in relation to space in this workshop. By expressing emotions with their eyes and other body parts, they learned to create theatrical productions focusing on the idea of ‘aesthetic-space’. As they understood and appreciated the importance of space in Sanskrit dramas, the participants were also inspired to perform for audiences.
