About Book
This book unveils the secret world of Indian classical theatre?the fundamental principles of sublime grace, stage presence, and effective communication of emotions. It analyzes the techniques of Centripetal Effect, Centre Point, and the Introspective Illusion that influence the presentation of plays. It also analyzes the secret of grace. Bharata Muni has given an unbelievably detailed study of the facial muscles and head movements. He orders What to do but not Why? The first chapter gives the rationale behind every sloka dealing with this. The second chapter (Acting with the Face) and the third chapter (Acting with the Body)?both analyze the logic of using various parts of the body to create bhava. This book is unique since it studies the unrevealed secret of dramaturgy; no other work has ever attempted such a logical study of grace and bhava.
