ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
The movement sessions will focus primarily on presence and working on the individual performer's relationship with the ensemble. Participants can expect to sharpen their use of the senses in performance making and building liveness on stage. Further, the workshop shall also touch upon aspects of the relationship between text and movement.
The workshop is facilitated by Manjari Kaul, a Delhi-based performer, director and teacher. She is a graduate of the DUENDE School of Ensemble Physical Theatre (2015) and holds a Master's degree from The School of Arts & Aesthetics, Jawaharlal Nehru University. She recently performed and conceptualized a digital show titled Firefly Women, supported by ReFrame Arts Genderalities 2.0. The work is based on letters written from jail by two women wrongfully incarcerated under a draconian law. As a grantee of ThinkArts grant 2022 she is currently developing new work for children with Aagaaz Theatre Trust. She has taught at DUENDE School (India), Srishti School of Art, Design & Technology as a guest faculty and co-directed a show with second year students at The National School of Drama. Her solo piece, Chronicle of a Death Foretold, based on the novella by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, commissioned by Instituto Cervantes, has travelled to London, Athens, Delhi, Bangalore and Lucknow. Manjari’s work is dedicated to exploring the incongruous disruptive and off-key in live performance. Gender, sexuality and memory have been subjects that she has been particularly preoccupied within her work.
