 DESCRIPTION
spacer

The Natya Shastra is incredibly wide in its scope. While it primarily deals with stagecraft, it has come to influence music, classical Indian dance, and literature as well. It covers stage design, music, dance, makeup, and virtually every other aspect of stagecraft. It is very important to the history of Indian classical music because it is the only text which gives such detail about the music and instruments of the period. The Natya Shastra ranges widely in scope, from issues of literary construction, to the structure of the stage , to a detailed analysis of musical scales and movements , to an analysis of dance forms that considers several categories of body movements, and their impacts on the viewer. Natya Shastra remained an important text in the fine arts for many centuries.

Individual chapters deal with aspects such as makeup, costume, acting, directing, etc. A large section deals with meanings conveyed by the performance get particular emphasis, leading to a broad theory of aesthetics . Four kinds acting are described – that by body part motions , that by speech , that by costumes and makeup , and the highest mode, by means of internal emotions, expressed through minute movements of the lips, eyebrows, ear, etc.

The playwright, actors and musician work together to portray the bhava called rati (love). The Natya Shastra was the first major text that dealt with music at length. It was considered the defining treatise of Indian classical music. While much of the discussion of music is focuses on musical instruments. The theory of rasa described in the text has also been a major influence on modern Indian cinema.
