A Talking Dance Duet by Dr. Priya Srinivasan in collaboration with Carnatic vocalist Uthra Vijay, Visual Design and photography by Arun Munoz. This performance features the poetry of Tamil women and heroines through time such as Avvayar from 3rd Century BCE to Kannagi, Andal, and a more recent female Tamil war colonel from Sri Lanka. Their texts and perspectives are placed in conversation with Srinivasan’s contemporary perspectives on the war on women and women’s bodies. At the same time the performance explores queer desire in this context. How can we reimagine alternate feminist aesthetics from the perspective of Tamil women’s engagement with war, violence, injustice, desire, and choice?
The event takes place at xart splitta. Address on the link above.
