The workshop consists of four elements:

1. Exploring gross physical movements in relation to space – ‘deconstructing’ the Sanskrit theatrical concepts of ‘ākāśa-maṇḍala’ and ‘ākāśa-cārī’ based on Sage Bharata’s Nāṭyaśāstra.

2. Exploring the definition of Sanskrit ‘stage-space’ based on the kakṣya-vibhāga discussion in the Nāṭyaśāstra.

3. Exploring subtle physical movements in relation to space – the expression of emotions, specially the movement of eyes – based on the concept of sthāyibhāva, vyabhicāribhāva and rasa in Nāṭyaśāstra.

4. Reading Select Sanskrit Dramas – focusing on the expression of ‘space’ explored in I, II and III above. The participants will be able to understand and appreciate the dramatic notion of space in Sanskrit dramas – why and how of the idea of space portrayed in Sanskrit plays.
