A note from the facilitator 

Exploring Navarasas has been an integral part of my work with actors ever since I actively began working as an actor trainer/facilitator in 2015.Over the years I have arrived at a simple yet very 

effective way to tap into a performers emotional quotient and help enhance its expressive potential. 

The workshop will help the performer to be at ease with their emotions, and help them find their own triggers and mechanisms to access and eventually play with them. This workshop is most suited for people with some prior theatre/performance experience and will be intense! The workshop will have no direct elements from Kutiyattam (meaning the Kutiyattam stance, choreography or any character associations from the myths) or any performance form in particular. 

I am indebted to Vinay Kumar from Adishakti who introduced me to this practice way back in 2009, and later of course Shri Venu G with whom I have been fortunate to have one-on-one sessions. 

Vivek Vijayakumaran (Actor/Theatre Facilitator/Trainer) 

Vivek has been part of a constant learning process for over 10 years, facilitated by some of the most renowned theatre stalwarts and masters. The most recent being a month long Master course with Thomas Richards at ‘The Workcenter of Jerzy Grotowski and Thomas Richards ‘in Italy. 

Vivek is also the recipient of the Inlaks India Theatre Award 2012

His latest work BHIMA has been performed across India to much appreciation and acclaim (since 2015), including at an international festival in Colombo (2016). It was featured as one of the 10 best plays at META 2017 (Mahindra Excellence in Theatre Awards) with 7 nominations and 1 win. Since 2015, He has actively worked with over 20 young and upcoming performers in Bangalore and is slowly moving towards creating a community of disciplined, inspired and hardworking actors. Vivek was featured in Forbes India life (Oct 2015 issue) as one of the 12 theatre practitioners who are pushing boundaries and innovating in India today.
