Adishakti announces another set of workshops this year to meet the  growing demand for them from young actors, dancers and other performing professionals. In addition to our usual beginner’s workshop  we hope to introduce an advanced workshop for those who have already done the basics with us.

The workshops have proved to be increasingly relevant to dancers as  well, because of our emphasis on physical culture, Kalaripayattu, swimming and the activation of body centers and the harnessing of  their energies. Additionally there are lessons in rhythm ,and over and above all this, the most important contribution that Adishalti can make to dancers is the use of breath for the generation of the eight
  Bhavas, which we have researched and developed from the Koodiyattam  practice.

From 21st October
2011 to 30th October 2011.
The fee for these courses is Rs 18,000/- per head and
includes the fee, board, lodging, laundry expenses.

From 15th November 2011 to 30th November 2011, we will host the  advanced workshop for fifteen days. The fee for this course is Rs.25,000 per head. This workshop will revolve around the application of

the craft imbibed in the beginners workshop and will revolve around selected performance pieces. These performance pieces will be sent to you in advance.

By 2012 we hope to have created a pool of actors from both the advanced and basic workshops who might be interested in testing their skills further through a production created at Adishakti.
