Main Structural & Conceptual Source: The Natyashastra 6:15

This performance installation is the third in this series of performances deriving from De Quincey Co’s 3-month residency entitled Natyashastra & Body Weather in Kolkata, India in 2003. Utilising structural elements drawn from The Natyashastra, the ancient Indian Treatise on artistic practice, the performers negotiate a series of 8 emotional states on the basis of their Bodyweather training which is a synthesis of Eastern and Western performance practices. The piece involves an installation and a 15-minute performance cycle.
