Jyothirgamaya Natya Kalari is offering an intensive, immersive laboratory :
Meeting Macbeth - A Walk in the Dark, at a beautiful camp site near
Ramanagaram in Karnataka from March 6th to 11th. This workshop combines an

Macbeth is a tale of titanic archetypes, a tale of terror and hate, and yet
a tale of humanity. It is the story of a man who gained a kingdom, but lost
his soul. A world of uncertainty and nightmare, where all moral

of the waking, everyday world does not hold - it is a world of darkness and
nightmare, of insidious voices and nameless, lurking terrors - a world we
may recognize around us.

How do we confront the monsters lurking in our own depths? What is the
meaning of trust and betrayal? To what extent do we go to feed ambition?
What voices do we choose to listen to? How do we journey through fear and
hatred, to reach courage, and how do we find meaning?

India’s richest 1% own 58% of the country’s wealth, according to Credit
Suisse. Structural inequity is historically embedded in India, but it seems
