Do I write for my own self expression, or for the benefit of the audience? The first approach is generally associated with ‘art house’, the second with ‘populist’. At their extremes they run from the incomprehensible to the banal. But are these polarities in opposition to each other, or are we missing the point? Drawing inspiration from the ancient Eastern discourse on theatre, the Natya Shastra, this talk endeavours to wrestle with the conundrum in search of practical solutions
