The Department of Theater and the William J. Cooper Foundation presented the North American premiere of the East Coast Artists' production of Harvest.
Each performance is followed by discussion with the playwright, Manjula Padmanabhan.
Harvest is presented in conjunction with a lecture by East Coast Artists Artistic Director Richard Schechner on the Ramlila of Ramnagar and related questions of South Asian aesthetics on September 6 at 4:15pm in the LPAC cinema.
Combining classical Indian ideas about acting and emotion, contemporary theories of emotion coming from psychology and neurobiology, and French theorist Antonin Artaud's demand that actors be athletes of the motions, the RasaBoxes are ECA's unique contribution to Western performer training. Workshops led by ECA's Michele Minnick. Sept. 14 1-4, Sept. 15 4-7, Sept. 16 2-5, Pearson-Hall Theatre LPAC.
