Theatre or theater is a collaborative form of performing art that uses live performers, typically actors or actresses, to present the experience of a real or imagined event before a live audience in a specific place, often a performers may communicate this experience to the audience through combinations of gesture, speech, song, music, and dance. tragedy from Indian Sanskrit drama. Here there is a problem. There are no San-skrit plays from the epoch of the NS (if dated according to Gupt); the extant Sanskrit plays are from a period nearly a millennium after the NS. Thus discuss-ing dramatic structure in terms of extant Sanskrit plays is to put the cart some centuries before the horse.

The major source of evidence for Sanskrit theatre is A Treatise on Theatre (Nātyaśāstra), a compendium whose date of composition is uncertain (estimates range from BCE to CE) and whose authorship is attributed to Bharata Muni. The Treatise is the most complete work of dramaturgy in the ancient world. The Natya Shastra (Sanskrit: नाट्य शास्त्र, Nāṭyaśāstra) is an ancient Indian treatise on the performing arts, encompassing theatre, dance and was written during the period between BCE and CE in classical India and is traditionally attributed to the Sage Bharata.. The Natya Shastra is incredibly wide in its scope.

Sanskrit drama- all end happily; focus is on the actor, who uses movement and a set style of hand gestures to communicate meaning. Rasa- mood in Indian Sanskrit. Beijing Opera- acting is dancelike, with each movement set to a steady rhythm established by the leader of the on-stage orchestra who plays a drum. THEATRE TERMS.

According to Bharata, the only two drama-types, out of the ten, included in the scheme of Dasarupaka, that could be considered as well-structured and complete were: Nataka and Prakarana.

Sanskrit Poetry is traditionally divided into two types, viz. that which is capable of being presented on board and that which is capable of being read out and heard.

The first type springs from the role played by visual effect in appreciation of a specimen of Poetic Art and is called Drama. Sanskrit Dramaturgy is required to analyse in details the plot and its divisions in a drama and the.

and development of Sanskrit drama has been a complex one engaging the endeavour of many scholars. The first well arranged work that one could find on Sanskrit dramaturgy is the N~tyakastra of Bharata.

In the field of Sanskrit dramaturgy the place of Bharata's NatyaS~stra is unique by its antiquity as being the pioneer work in the field. Classical Sanskrit theatre reached its boom during the first nine centuries. It was Sanskrit grammarian Panini who brought to fore the aphorisms on acting.

Sanskrit drama, for the death of Durjodhana who was rightly served for his misdeeds does not produce any grief in the minds of the audience.

5 There is definitely a huge difference between Aristotle and sage Bharata having entirely different approaches to drama which are particularly Western and particularly Indian respectively. Bharata muni describes 15 types of drama ranging from one to ten acts.

Individual chapters deal with aspects such as makeup, costume, acting and directing etc. With detailed theory of drama, Natyasastra is comparable to the Poetics of Aristotle. Aristotle’s theory of catharsis (pent-up release of emotions) has no resemblance to Bharata’s understanding of rasa.

BASIC CONCEPTS OF ARISTOTLE AND BHARATA MUNI: A REASSESSMENT 85 6. Dhanajay, an ancient critic of Sanskrit drama categorized Sanskrit drama into ten groups, on the basis of their unique specificities in theme, calling them “Doshrupak”. Among the others, “Ehomrigo” was a kind of play which revolved around the lives of residents of Heaven.

The enactment of drama in theatre, performed by actors on a stage before an audience, presupposes collaborative modes of production and a collective form of reception. The structure of dramatic texts, unlike other forms of literature, is directly influenced by this.

Sanskrit Movies and Drama in India The full length feature film is based on the ancient Sanskrit drama Mudrarakshasam, The Nātyashāstra delineates a detailed theory of drama comparable to the Poetics of Aristotle.

Bharata refers to bhavas, the imitations of emotions that the actors perform. Studies in the Natyasastra attempts to present all aspects of the performance of Sanskrit Drama of the classical period.

For this, the material available in the Natyasastra and other works on dramaturgy, sculptural evidence and the traditions of classical-dance-drama styles in the various parts of the country are made use of. Bharata classifies drama into ten types. Each one has differing aims, length, and magnitude.

“The structure of drama, according to Sanskrit dramatic theory, is the scheme of avasthas (Stages/phases) and samdhis (juncture) and samdhyangas (parts of junctures). These form the infrastructure of the drama.” [2,].

The ancient Sanskrit drama distinguished one form of drama (Rupaka) from its other forms on the basis of its Vastu (subject-matter), Neta (Hero) and Rasa (sentiment) – vastu neta rasas tesam did not recognize classification based on how the drama ended, on whether the characters lived happily ever after or whether the characters struggled in vain against almost.
