- Translated from French, this non-fiction on Indian dance theatre provides both an insider's and an outsider's perspective. The author-Katia L geret-Manochhaya - narrates her real life experiences with the art forms she learned in India. With distinguished expertise on the aesthetics of Indian dance theatre, the author speaks of its influence on Europe and how it is staged theatrically in contemporary France - Transformed into a transcultural piece of work in its very essence, this book overcomes all barriers - linguistic, literary, physical, cultural and geographical - to bring the global community of actor-dancers from the world of dance theatre to the fore At the heart of Indian literature, Dance Theatre of India by Katia L geret-Manochhaya, is a book where the author explores the various rasas of Bharata-natyam and other dance forms, both as a dancer and a researcher. In the milieu of diverse linguistic and cultural interpretations, the book is a field of experimentation where the modalities for expressions and cultural differences would forever reinvent themselves. As one browses through the pages, one is transported to a world of dance and drama reading the various expressions of the artists in colorful costumes narrating stories from all over the world. The examples proposed are linked with knowledge which derives from the erudition of Sanskrit texts or from the collective creativity of artists from several cultures of India and other countries. Like the art forms it discusses, the book is a transcultural piece of work in its very essence.
