About the Programme

Katha is a story. Katha is an experience. Katha belongs to all who genuinely seek it. Dr Rajashree Warrier invites those who seek the nuances of Abhinaya that drive a Bharatnatyam performance. The maestro is hosting a two-day online and offline workshop to guide aficionados towards an immersive understanding of the craft.

This hybrid sessions shall focus on a composition of Carnatic icon Tallapaka Annamacharya. To further emphasize the constructive influence of Indian dance, the seminar's location is a 100?rbon-neutral environment. The site chosen by the Guru is the famous HEALING FORESTS: Eco-Restoration Centre in Memory of Miyawaki San, Kotali Paara, Puliyarakonam, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala. Set amidst a canopy of forests designed to pro-actively combat climate change, an ambience of silent and decisive resistance will permeate through each session.

The Miyawaki method aims at the ecological restoration of forests in a short amount of time. It is named after the late Prof (Dr) Akira Miyawaki, a pioneer in revitalising Earth's biodiversity. Our ancient texts and rituals mention the practical and cultural importance of the forest and caution against any disturbance to the equilibrium that keeps our biosphere ticking. Similarly, the Guru will guide participants on a journey of discovering the ethos behind compositions that moulded India's core heritage. Abhinaya is an ancient treatise, dwelled much by scholars such as Nandikeshwar and Bharata. Katha attempts to represent this divine art form in its 21st-century representation and its influence on India's oldest classical dance, Bharatanatyam.
