Avadhana is an ancient art involving linguistic acrobatics and jugglery like no other. Poetry is composed extempore here, under unbelievable constraints and distractions. The course is an introduction to this fascinating tradition, its history, and all the technical and creative aspects of the Avadhana. What's more, this course is offered by a scholar widely credited with reviving this art form in Kannada in our times!
