A Conversation for The Theatre
sankar Started conversation Nov 10, 2003
Q1 : Do you think that the studies of Prof. Richard Schechner on the rasa theory is adequate? Does the western research methodologies work when one dives deep into the mystic world of the Indian performer? To begin, he has failed to rationally translate the 9 rasas into English. Again, he has failed to explain the term Rasa and its meaning with conviction.
Q2 : Would you agree with me if I say that Schechner speaks a language of appropriation rather than an ideal cultural sharing?
