KCC Art Laboratory 2020-21
With the pandemic altering the world, our sense of space shifted drastically. Spaces of public gathering closed limiting us to the home space – that resulted in the exploration of known, smaller spaces as performance spaces. The physical space that we understood as performance space, got squeezed. While the small window in our telecommunication device connects us with a new space abundance named the virtual/ cyberspace – our physical enclosure stays restricted between the frames of our devices.
On the other hand, there are conversations questioning gender, caste, religion-based ideologies and the ideas of human rights and freedom of expression.
Recognising these phenomena Kolkata Centre for Creativity invites project applications for its upcoming multidisciplinary laboratory “Crucible” (the name does not intend to draw any association with the famous Arthur Miller play “The Crucible”). This laboratory will facilitate 2 performance projects that are negotiating the questions around these phenomena.
