Most of the papers collected in the present volume have a common theme : they deal with the amazing persistence and continuity of the Natyasastra tradition even in the contemporary theatre. Most of the papers were originally presented in a U.G.C. Seminar on "Living Traditions of Natyasastra in India" conducted by the Department of Sanskrit, University of Calicut in November, 1995. A Few items had to be included to the volume to cover areas left out in the Seminar. There are some other papers also which deal with peripheral problems related to Natysastra tradition, especially its text and meaning.The term contemporary theatre is used in the present Context in a broad sense to include not only classical art forms like Kathakali and Kutiyattam, but even modern experimental theatre. Natyasastra, ascribed to the mythical Bharata, is encyclopaedic in its scope and range. Its authorship, date, and even textual details may be problematic. But there can be no denying of the fact that it represents an Indian attempt to give shape to its own theatrical philosophy which was never lost sight of until the advent of modernity ushered in by colonialism. Hence, we just cannot imagine a genuine Indian theater without a reference to the broad theoritical framework outlined in this extra-ordinarily rich store-house of indigenous theatrical knowledge. Regional art forms like Kutiyattam, Kathakali, Krisnanattam, Yaksagana, Bharatanatyam or even folk forms like the Yatra of Bengal are tied to the Natyasastra through an umbilical chord. For that matter, even modern experimental theatre makes use of the stagecraft of Bharata and concepts like that of the Sutradhara.Printed Pages: 200 with 16 Plates.
