Research is an ongoing
theatre project conducted by Abani Biswas (India)
in Europe and in India for the past 15 years.
The project combines workshops, performances, parades and festival activities.
It gathers artists and masters of some of the most ancient Indian performing
musicians from Bengal
of Kalaripayattu martial art
dancers from Purullia (Jarkhand)
Temple dancers of Orissa
The Sources Research proposes
two currents of activity:
focused on the work on ones body, mind and heart, on the work
with nature and with silence. The inspiration and the structure come
from the work of the Theatre of Sources directed by Jerzy Grotowski
in which Abani Biswas had participated from 1979 to 1982.
- theatre activity
that presents traditional performative techniques to a large public.
The Sources Research
has its own workcenter: Theatre
House located in Santiniketan (India).
