Adishakti Program: Actor’s Workshop: Call for applications
SOURCE OF PERFORMANCE ENERGY:
A ten day workshop for actors from10th to 20th of March 2014
Founded in 1981 Adishakti is a performance company engaged in the research and reanimation of traditional knowledges in theatre, dance, music, movement and craft forms — with a view to creating a contemporary hybrid aesthetic and performance language. Over the years it has evolved a largely physical craft for feeding the physical, vocal and psychological expression of the actor based on certain physical forms like Kalaripayattu the Kerala martial art form, breath practices for psychological expression used in Koodiyattam a form of classical Sanskrit Theatre and the rhythm patterns of music which accompany Koodiyattam performance. Although all these forms are rooted in a specific cultural context Adishakti has endeavored to seek out the fundamental principles underlying these practices to make them applicable to a wide constituency of performers: those from different cultural and aesthetic contexts and from different kinds of contemporary and traditional performance.
OBJECTIVES OF WORKSHOP
The workshop aims to equip the participant in the basics of this physical craft and to be autonomous in applying and extending this praxis towards their own performance practice.
