India: process reflection workshop

Deadline: 20-Jul-22

The Goethe-Institut is pleased to call for applications for the THINKING THROUGH PROCESS workshop to introduce the fundamental principles of dramaturgy relating to form, structure and concept through a series of exercises, discussions and interactions with resource persons.

Thinking Through Process’ will encourage its participants to reflect on the possibilities of their current projects or emerging ideas for new creative work. Since the workshop attempts to focus on individual creative processes, it is open to a maximum of twelve participants who will be chosen from all applications.

The workshop will focus on imagined and documentary theatrical practices, in addition to probing the role of dramaturgy in relation to directing, playwriting and

adaptation. While dramaturgy can be understood as the translation of a concept into practice with theatrical productions in mind, it is now applied to other disciplines including dance, movement, visual installations and exhibitions.

Details

The workshop is the second in a series of workshops conducted by Rustom Bharucha at different locations in India.

There is no cost to attend the workshop; however, attendance is mandatory for all five days of the workshop. Each day will include morning and afternoon sessions of approximately 8 hours. Participants from outside Kolkata will need to cover their own travel and accommodation costs.
