The project will begin with a master class in which the project members will learn techniques from ancient Sanskrit theatre (specifically rasas). We will spend a few hours playing with the rasa boxes and improving the emotional and movement skills of the actors. Over the next couple of days, the project members will come up with a movement and choose music/poetry to create a story. This is what will be performed for the audience. The story will only be told through movement and accompanying music/poetry. There will not be any words. A lot of what we learn in our classes are western styles of performance. We discuss other types of performance in our Theatre History and Literature classes, but a lot of the time we never to get to experience or learn them.
