Essays on Classical Indian Dance

by Donovan Roebert

Deftly translating the visual experience from the domain of performance to that of writing, this collection delves into questions about what dance is and what dance means to heritage as well as to the various socio-cultural conflicts that prevail in the current. This work joins the historic list of connoisseurship practices of dance. Donovan Roebert’s keen sense of detecting the affective essence of sentiments (rasa) marks him as a connoisseur (rasika) who facilitates reflective imagery (darpan) of dance, both for the dancer and for the reader through the literary domain.
