Physical Theatre Workshop by Arka Mukhopadhyay A physical theatre workshop based on Sahrudaya – Theatre of Resonance- 5-days culminating in a showcase. Sahrudaya (literally, ‘of one heart’) refers to a performer who is in a state of radiance and grace, resonant with her/ his interior awareness, with the co-creators and with the space. It is the performer who has the courage to be vulnerable, to be spiritually naked, and to meet other human beings with this vulnerability, without pretence.
