Creative Workshop in California, April 2017

April 11, 2017

Designed for intermediate to advanced Bharata Natyam practitioners, Kamala will teach this 3-hour workshop focusing on play, creative expression, and inventing contemporary ways of moving through the classical BN idiom. Through a variety of choreographic exercises, we will challenge the paradigms of symmetry and dimensionality within nritta whilst creating solo and group sequences. We will explore how physical contact is possible within the form, and express concepts and choreographic themes that bring Bharata Natyam into deeper contemporary focus.

At minimum, dancers should be trained to jathiswaram and students should be 17 or older. Exceptions will be made on a case-by-case basis.
