Subject: The India Theatre Programme | July 2016 Call for Applications

Dear Ohio University Theater Students,

Greetings and warm wishes for the new year.

My name is Pooja and I work with the India Theatre Programme, a theatre residency in India. The India Theatre Programme is an initiative by The Drama School, Mumbai - an organisation that works in the field of drama pedagogy in India.

Though this is the first year we're doing it, we have put a considerable amount of thought into the project, and truly hope that it will act as a strong catalyst for meaningful exchange through practice and understanding, and possibly even aid further collaborations that emerge from its process.

The objective of the residency is:

  *   to engage and explore 4 Indian performing arts forms through working with elements of them in a workshop format.

  *   to understand and explore principles of performance as put forward in ancient dramaturgical texts such as the Natyashastra, as research through practice.

  *   to open perspectives that will further enrich each participant’s personal practices in the performing arts.

  *   to act as a starting point for those seeking to explore creative collaborations with Indian traditional theatrical forms.

As you can imagine, in its inaugural year, we are keen for this to be a successful engagement, and are keen to reach out globally to as many artists and networks for artists as possible to find individuals who would want to be a part of this seminal opportunity to explore, engage and understand performance from the traditional Indian milieu through practice. We are also keen to have as many organisational partners support this project, and make it easier for performing artists and theatre makers to participate in the programme by reducing the financial obstacles to it.

If you could help us out in any capacity, in terms of helping us spread the word or your own personal guidance and feedback on the programme, I would be most grateful. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Regards, Pooja Anna Pant

Indian dramatic practice dates back to the 1st century BCE, if not earlier, and its fundamental principles have informed performance practices from across the world (such as Grotowski, Stanislavsky, Zarrilli and Schechner to name a just a few).
