We are thrilled to collaborate with the renowned Bharatanatyam and Bhagawata Mela artiste Shri N Sriknath for an Intensive learning course focusing on the Marga Techniques prescribed by Bharata Muni. This intensive will focus on the first module of the technique.
Through the course of this workshop, he would be covering crucial aspects from the Natya Shastra such as Angas, Upangas, Pratyangas, Mukhajas, Nritta Hastas, Hasta Karnas, Sthanas, Bhumi Charis, Aaksh Charis, and the 108 Karanas.
In the first module, he will cover:
– BHOOMI CHARIS (8)
– AKASHA CHARIS (8)
– ANGAS (SHIRO, URO, PARSHVA, KATI & PADA BHEDAS)
– NRITTA HASTAS – (15)
Sage Bharatha’s Natya Sastra is an encyclopedic work on theater art. It is perhaps the oldest extant treatise on the subject in the world. Natya Sastra has 36 chapters written in the Sanskrit language. From the style of presentation and syntax, it resembles Vedic literature and is rightly called the Panchama/fifth Veda. Natya Sastra has been the common basics for classical tradition in music, dance, poetics, and iconography for the entire Indian subcontinent and even more.
I am extremely delighted to teach and share my knowledge on THE MARGA TECHNIQUE with special emphasis on Charis and Karanas. Modules are designed in sync with the pedagogy that we follow at Nrityodaya, my Alma Mater. Marga learning is more of a technique than a style. We will do an in-depth study of the basics of Marga, including Bhedas, Sthanas, Nrtta Hastas, Hasta Karanas, and Charis before we plunge into Karanas. This requires an immense amount of patience and perseverance.
