The Courtesan in traditional Indian dance is significant in contemplative practice as well as in focusing on aesthetics as the space of transformation. The Courtesan world parallels the limitlessness and ‘otherness’ that is necessary for us to overcome our limited ways of thinking. It transforms “Kaama” or desire, the strongest human drive, into a transformative aesthetic meditation. This radical shift is the doorway towards the contemplative experience.
The intensive will consider the ritual, dance and emotional content of the Courtesan domain in temple dance. It invites participants to a world of power, freedom and beauty.
