About the Event   

This workshop is the second in a series of workshops being conducted by Rustom Bharucha at different locations in India. Its overall purpose is to introduce the fundamental principles of dramaturgy relating to form, structure and concept through a series of exercises, discussions and interactions with resource persons. With the overall objective of creating new narratives and projects, the workshop will focus on devised and documentary theatre practices, in addition to probing the role of dramaturgy in relation to direction, playwriting and adaptation. While dramaturgy can be understood as the translation of concept into practice with theatre productions in mind, it has now come to be applied to other disciplines as well including dance, movement, visual installations, and exhibitions. The workshop will include sessions with experts from India and abroad.

‘Thinking Through Process’ will encourage its participants to think through the possibilities of their ongoing projects or emergent ideas for new creative work.  Since the workshop attempts to focus on individual creative processes, it is open to a maximum of twelve participants who will be chosen out of all the applications.

There is no charge for participating in the workshop; however, attendance is mandatory for all five days of the workshop. Each day will include morning and afternoon sessions of approximately 8 hours. Participants from outside Kolkata will be expected to cover their own costs of travel and accommodation.
