Attakkalari Inlaks Scholarship Scheme for the education of talented youth.

Attakkalari in collaboration with The Inlaks India Foundation is offering an Scholarship program. Under this initiative, talented performing artists, particularly dance and movement artists, who wish to get comprehensive professional training of international standards, will get a rare opportunity to get a qualification from Attakkalari, India's leading contemporary dance institution. The Scheme aims to provide crucial support to dance artists who are talented, passionate and committed yet unable to pursue their dream due to financial constraints.

This year, the Attakkalari Inlaks Scholarship will be offered to TWO eligible candidates from India who are offered admission to Attakkalari Certificate Programme in Movement Arts and Pedagogy through the selection process. The Scholarship will cover the Rs.1,00,000 tuition fees for the six months program and provide a sum of Rs. 1,50,000 for the student to cover the living expenses in Bangalore. Potential candidates who clear the auditions and seek the Attakkalari Inlaks Scholarship will be scrutinised and assessed based on a predefined process.

Flying Low Intensive by Prashant More

Flying low is a contemporary dance training technique developed by David Zambrano. This technique focuses mainly on the dancer's relationship with the floor, utilizing simple movement patterns, speed, alertness, awareness with space and other fellow dancers, and spirals which explore cohesion and expansion of the body.

Improvisation/ Research This session will look into the aspects of experimenting, creating and reflecting. This part invites you to explore your practice and awareness on what your interests relating to movements and physical performances are. The workshop will provide various frames of tasks, tools and methods to develop materials in relation to space, time, bodies and objects. We will work on how we make choices while creating. How can we bring ourselves into a space where the fields of possibility open out before us. What helps us to navigate our process? We will work with the question of being watched or looked at, how we can remain present under the intensity of an audience’s gaze? We will work alone, together, in small groups, or in pairs. We will watch and be watched. We will share what we see and experience and will ask questions and find ways to answer them. Although very physical, the class will follow a clear structure never breaking the flow but systematically guiding one from the beginning to the end, maintaining a synergy of one energy that binds all, with a non-judgmental approach.
