We continue our journey in the ākāśa story – performance practice with a 6 days workshop which will be hosted at Zorbha the Buddha, in New Delhi from January 21 – 27, 2023.  The workshop is open to past students of our Katha’Koli and  ākāśa workshops. However, new participants are welcome to join also. 

We shall be dwelling deep into the practice of uncovering the deeper meaning of stories and to add to its aesthetic and emotional appeal for the audience, through a process of exercises, discussions and lectures. Thematically we approach the contemporary retelling of folk tales. 

We will also be witnessing live traditional Indian storytelling performance in course of the workshop. 

At the end of the workshop the participants will emerge with performances.

ākāśa (previously called Katha’Koli) is a method of story performance based on the teachings of Natyashastra & Western theatrical practices. 

ākāśa international workshop residency on story performance is a continuation of our 6 years long journey to emerge with a new way for performing and making stories. Based on Natyashastra, this method has many applications in real life for performing artists and artists in general, in pedagogy, therapy and for building stronger & healthier society & institutions.
