Derived from the Sanskrit word meaning ‘a civilizational dimension’, nagarika is an integrated information system on Indian physical traditions through technology and is the first such initiative in India in the field of traditional performing arts. The attempt is to showcase the various concepts of the body as well as the principles of movement underlying these traditions as articulated by masters of the form from a vantage point and worldview shaped by their particular paradigms and contexts. Our effort is to place these explorations in the realm of practice and to put out in the public domain the knowledge of expert practitioners – through their own physical and verbal articulations and with as much relevant contextual detail as permitted within the scope of an interactive DVD.
