On the 14th and 15th, join us for "Breath, Body, Space", a workshop for actors, dancers and musicians, led by Arka Mukhopadhyay.
By observing and connecting with the rhythms and patterns of our own breath, we will work on grounding, centring, attention and responsiveness. We will learn how to unlock the flow of impulse from within our bodies, and thus work towards a deep and expressive physical and vocal language.

The Arshinagar Project is envisioned as a collective of artists
and cultural practitioners from different traditional and contemporary
disciplines, as well as practitioners from other disciplines such as
anthropology, education and ecology, for research into performance
as transformational action.
'Arshinagar' 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' (literally 'one-stringed') - a drone-like
instrument used in different forms and names in different Asian
cultures, which has come to symbolize the Bauls.
The Arshinagar Project aims to foster a spirit of freedom, respect for
human diversity, ecological harmony and love, among young adults,
youth in colleges and universities, educators and others, through
performances, immersive workshops in urban and natural settings
based on traditions of mystical performance and practice as well as
contemporary performance-craft, through lecture-demonstrations,
seminars, and journeys through inner and outer spaces.
