[Machine Translation:] The Natyasastra treaty is the first major performing arts poetry that comes from the old. Its publication , for the first time in Castilian , represents a whole cultural event to discover the existence of a theoretical and practical thinking that goes back to the very origins of the dramatic and artistic representation.
Myth , science and literature , with a wisdom , a sensual pedagogy and vital eroticism , intertwined here to show a body that was ahead of the main ideas that would come to be developed much later by the most influential contemporary schools around the actor.
The finding of rewrites Natyasastra certainly dramatic art history . Coquelin , Stanislavski , Meyerhold , Brecht , Grotowski , Strasberg , are somehow prefigured in this foundational book. Even Aristotle , and that this work not only provides one of the missing links of civilization , being also shows the multiple racking and cultural exchanges that may occur between East and West in the past, but opens a new vision of the genesis and evolution of poetic style and composition in the performing arts.
