  1. "...the end of all our exploring Will be to arrive where we started And know the place for the first time." This workshop explores artistic action as a search for personal truth, without lies or pretence. From ancient times, different practitioners have sought liberation through the body itself. In Bengal, Tantric Buddhists, Vaishnavas and the Bauls have all searched for "Sahaj" - a condition of simplicity and organicity. Their practices embraced all and rejected the ritualism and dogma of mainstream religions. All wisdom is contained in the human body itself, they believed - "whatever is there in the universe is there in the body's vessel" , say the Bauls. Fundamental to all these traditions are techniques of the breath, manifested through meditation, song, chant or ritualized movement. We draw inspiration from these traditions, yet situate ourselves in our own times. Through the work, we want to ask: .In our times of complexity and fractured identities, how do we search for simplicity, organicity and flow? .How do we 'kill' ourselves - i.e., kill the narrow external self created by social conditioning, pretence and falsehood, and connect with our unique, authentic humanness? .How can we be "naked" , i.e. how do we stop hiding behind socially constructed identity and meet the other in an authentic place of creation? The work will involve: . Working with space, self and presence . Working with rhythm and flow . Working with inner sounds and music, specifically drawing upon Baul songs . Working with silence . Working with movement and stillness . Exploring contact with the other The workshop is open to professional performers (actors, dancers, musicians) as well as educators, community workers and others interested in the inner aspects of our selves (as distinct from daily-life rituals and behaviour) and in communication with others at an integral, human level The workshop will be led by Arka Mukhopadhyay of The Arshinagar Project in collaboration with musicians Pradip (Bula) Chatterjee and Ashok Das Baul. The workshop will take place in Calcutta between September 17th and 20th (about eight hours of work each day). Details of venue and timings will be communicated to those invited to participate. Fees: The expenses of organizing the workshop work out to INR 2,000/- head. There is no fixed fee, and it is possible to work out each participant&# 39;s contribution based on his/her circumstances. If interested, please mail us at thearshinagarprojec t@gmail.com with the subject line "Seeking Breath" and tell us who you are and why you'd like to do this workshop.

'Arshinagar&# 39; means 'the city of mirrors' , and the name is derived from a song by Lalon Phokir, one of the greatest masters among the Bauls of Bengal - wandering mystical musician-performers who through embodied practice attempt to touch the unbodied.The logo represents the 'ektara&# 39; (literally 'one-stringed&# 39;) - a drone-like instrument used in different forms and names in different Asian cultures, which has come to symbolize the Bauls.

  4. The Arshinagar Project, in association with Bauria People's Repertory Theatre, presents a residential workshop on Capoeira and Indigenous Brazilian music and dance, with Rafael Ceccon. The workshop will be held in Bauria, a historical site of labour struggle, situated across the river from Kolkata. Capoeira is an afro-brazilian dancing fight, that mixes music, rhythm, dance, martial art and spiritual elements. It is known for its acrobatic grace. Through Capoeira and Brazilian traditional dances we will aim to explore different possibilities of self expression and interaction, with oneself, with others and with the environment. Using physical movements, rhythm and Afro-Brazilian dances we will experience the Brazilian way of play and dance. The workshop is aimed at theatre activists, dancers, physical practitioners and anyone interested in exploring their relationship with their own bodies. About the Facilitator: Rafael Ceccon (Brazil) is a Physical Education professor, and has played capoeira since he was a kid, and practiced with diferent masters. He is a lover of Brazilian traditional music and dance. He has also worked with community development in slums and villages around Brazil, applying a methodology called Oasis, which promotes design and implementation of a community' s dreams by themselves.

  5. Sun Dec 2, 2012 11:43 pm (PST) . Posted by: "Arka Mukhopadhyay" arka.mukhopadhyay This is a lab in which we will examine our various creative approaches to making art or 'performance' . We will look at the nature of performance both from the individual as well as group process level. This will be an exploration of what it is that motivates our performance, the ways in which we source our inspirations as individuals while working within a group context. How are we able to continually develop and stay true to our own personal creative process, discover our own personal style while at the same time able to collaborate at the group or ensemble level. We will experiment with group ritual and examine how various environments and spaces (in the studio and outside) support a variety of different ways of being and making. In the end our improvisations and experiments will leave us with some new ways of being able to listen and work together, to collaborate as individual creators, balancing the art of self and other. This is a lab is suited for all performance levels including beginners. We will share our learning processes with one another and take responsibility for our own desired outcomes. This is not a class, all are encouraged to collaborate equally in its outcome. Your full input and authentic presence is requested, working with discomfort, boredom and even conflict. So let's play, lets create! About the Facilitator: MICHAEL DOBBIE is a body based, movement and theatre improvisor of 18 years and a lifetime of personal development work.
