September 21-22 | Workshop: Discovering Laya – The Sound Of Movement

One of our favourite dancer-choreographers, Sanjukta Wagh, returns to Dance Dialogues with a new workshop.
Rhythms carry in themselves energy structures which are made available to a classical dancer in the form of bols, talas and jatis. This workshop aims at rediscovering these learned rhythms, exploring these structures from new perspectives, discovering one’s unique engagement with space in sound and sound in space and movement. How does one find one’s form or arrive at a meaning through one’s engagement with laya and tala?
The workshop is open to classical and contemporary dancers, choreographers, performers and movers with at least 3 years of dance/ theatre training.


About the facilitator: 
Sanjukta Wagh has trained extensively under Rajashree Shirke in Kathak and under Murli Manohar Shukla in Hindustani Music. Her engagement with theatre (honed by playwright-director Chetan Datar), her recent year-long experience at the Laban Centre of Dance, London, her love of literature and deep unease with comfort zones, have led to her interdisciplinary and exploratory mode of work. She runs beej, an interdisciplinary initiative exploring dance process, pedagogy and performance.
