The Desire Project Workshop

Sep 07-08, 2019

10.00 AM - 5.00 PM

Workshop Fee*: 5600 INR

*Student, artiste and group discounts available


The Desire Project workshop looks at how we hold desire in our bodies. Of the firm belief that reclaiming and taking ownership of our desire is a path towards empowerment, the workshop invites participants to explore sensations, emotions, and questions on identity, desire, longing, and belonging. The intuitive body is central to our explorations for its capacity to bridge the conscious and unconscious, the inner and outer experience.


We will use authentic movement practices as a language to access deep layers of inner knowing, feeling, memory, sensation, and possibility organized in the living library of the body. Longings, fears, emotion, and unrealized impulses are allowed to emerge from the body-mind consciousness and be integrated.


While movement and dance are the primary languages, in order to fully embody what arises in our healing and expressive processes, this is complemented by embodied writing, drawing, photography and witness practice.



Brinda Jacob-Janvrin is a movement-based expressive arts therapist and a contemporary dancer/choreographer with more than 25 years of performing experience.


She is the Founder of the Studio for Movement Arts and Therapies Trust, which was created in January 2011 with the following vision - 'To offer creatively alive spaces and practices to nurture and catalyze self-inquiry, expression, and integration for individuals and communities.


An Authentic Movement practitioner since 2012, Brinda is passionate about the arts, the mysterious workings of the Psyche-Soma and connections between the Body and Earth.


Today Brinda trains, works with individual and group clients, facilitates, performs and choreographs.

We all are half done, we all are incomplete. Mohan Rakesh's Aadhe Adhure is what true theatre is. It is pure drama written with a very nuanced and methodical understandings of human psyche. It repeatedly draws often the theme of our expectations and reality. Are we happy with what we have? Can we ever be happy? What is happiness?

In Aadhe Adhure, Mohan Rakesh takes an ordinary family where the family relationships are already crumbling. The wife is the only earning member in a family of 5, the husband has lost all his self-confidence. The elder daughter eloped and married but is still struggling to find happiness, her younger brother has reached of age but yet to find a job and the youngest teenager has coming of age problems coupled with a need to get attention. The wife is tired of taking care of everyone and has her own desires and ambitions.

Rakesh wastes no time in setting up the tension, but he never lets go off it. This is a story where everyone is at fault and yet no-one is. Rakesh unfolds the story brilliantly and his command over his audience is splendid.

TOYO - Theatre on your own, uses minimal props to render the story. At some points, it feels mere a dramatic reading of the play yet the actors render their roles with a gloom that stays with you even after the play gets over. There is also a minimal use of shadow effects yet it adds exponential flavoring.

Aadhe Adhure is a must watch play. You can take your parents to this one and it will be a discussion point for the way back home.
