Dear Friends,

Greetings from Jamghat!!!

Jamghat (www.jamghat.in), a non-profit organization, works for the
rehabilitation of street children and has always been involved in theatre
for creating awareness and raising funds. This time we have come up with the
idea of giving theatre workshops and connecting with the people.

Arka Mukhopadhyay , a theatre practitioner and a poet will be taking the
theatre workshop this time. He has been involved with theatre for a long
time and is engaged in research on theatre training. He has performed
nationally as well internationally and has worked with children and teachers
throughout India and abroad. Apart from theatre, his other vocation is
poetry. His poems have been published worldwide and he was awarded TFA
creative writing award in the year 2008.

*"Breath, Body, Text"* - a workshop for actors, dancers and performers as
also musicians, painters, teachers, activists and others, will focus on
connecting with the self and unlocking one's inner creative potential
through an approach firmly grounded in the body, and will extend into areas
such as breath focus and presence, existing in a shared space as a group,
embodying the rasaas, and more. It is not restricted to performers, but can
be of value to anyone wishing to explore and engage with the self and
develop a heightened sense of existence. Topics will cover:

Breath - seeking the physical, emotional and spiritual centre through
breath, incorporating ideas of Buddhist and other meditation practices.
Voice work - chants from the Upanishads and others sources, organic sounds
of the body, songs and more
Emotions - the nine rasaas; exploring them through breath, inner rhythms,
gesture, eye-movements and more
Movement - exercises of the eye, finger and hand gestures, finding one's
physical texture, organic energy and impulse, integrating different strands
such as voice, breath, emotion and presence, being truthful and existing in
the moment
Ensemble work and devising - creating short compositions using ideas of the
singing, moving and speaking chorus, exploring space, through text and more.

Date: Friday, Saturday and Sunday
Time: Friday: 5 - 8, Saturday and Sunday: 3 - 6
