Katha: storytelling and the brain
For the Mark DeGarmo Virtual Salon Performance Series for Social Change series on March 2, 2023, I will be presenting a short demonstration called Katha. Through Bharatanatyam, I will talk about why we are drawn to stories, how the brain processes stories, and that storytelling is a tool, and the role of a storyteller’s is one of responsibility!
