Dawn Hartley Blog – My trip to India
Tuesday 31 Oct 2017
I recently returned from a week long research trip to Kolkata in India where I led dance and physical theatre workshops for 75 young people. Having made initial enquiries through contacts from a previous visit with Scottish Dance Theatre in 2014, I met Ruchira Das from ThinkArts earlier this year and Ruchira agreed to co-ordinate this trip. I also asked Ruchira if I might work with Dana Roy, a wonderfully skilled and enthusiastic Theatre Artist to accompany me in co-leading and translating. I had met and worked with Dana in 2014 then caught up with her again in Edinburgh (via an Imaginate project she was working on).
