The Evolution of Movement
Sat & Sun
25th and 26th April
10.00am - 5.00pm
Rs. 8000
Early Bird: 20% discount before 1st April.

The Evolution of Movement is based on the exploratory work Prof. Raymond Dart carried out in the 1940s. In this course, you will find the opportunity to experience the Dart Procedures. The procedures travel slowly upwards from the ground through the evolutionary stages of fish, amphibian, reptile, mammal, primate, proto-human and modern human - all of which are echoed in individual human growth from embryo to adult.

The procedures parallel evolutionary movement development from a situation of total safety and stillness on the earth, through various stages, to arrive finally at a state of upright poise and fine balance. Linked with our ancestral past you will discover your own evolutionary process and emerge "newly born" into the future.

This would be of special interest to anyone (professionally or privately) interested in expanding their movement vocabulary and range.

The procedures are practical tools to help improve movement sensitivity and creativity.

The course will be conducted within a framework of consciousness of the principles and practice of the F.M. Alexander Technique. By attending carefully to how you initiate every action you gain greater awareness of your power of self-control and what it means to let action emerge from stillness.

A workshop unlike any other you'll find in the city and well worth it.
Apr 25 – 26 | Sat-Sun | 10Am-5PM
Rs. 8,000

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.
