Stories by Hand by Preeti Vasudevan

Stories by Hand is a solo work on identity told through personal stories and narrated through the continuous placement and displacement of gestures affected by memory. Stories by Hand is a solo work searching for an individual identity through stories which are personal, mythical, and social and are narrated through the continuous placement and displacement of gestures affected by memory. Stories by Hand takes the hand gestures of Bharatanatyam (classical Indian dance) as the basis for a storytelling dance-theater interweaving east and west, past and present, the mythic and the everyday.

Noise Over Artists- A stand-up comedy show by Rajiv Rajaram & Utsav Chakraborty

Featuring two voice over (One Professional & One Rookie) professionals who have been creating more noises than voices since their childhoods. Rajiv Rajaram & Utsav Chakraborty aims to take through the everyday absurdities that voice-over artist endure and the impact it has on their lives. In a time of fake news, family WhatsApp groups and absolute polarization; two men will stand up and try to make you understand the greatest weapon that is used by our fellow Indians. 

To See or Not To See - A talk by Ana Lamata

Ana Lamata, Ph.D. in Contemporary Art History, has largely focused her research on the resonances between art and science. To See or Not to See is a reflection on how, at the beginning of the 20th century, the discovery of X-rays changed the way the world was perceived and the notion of reality itself. Today, when new technologies are challenging again our conceptions of reality, art can play a vital role in decoding these discoveries, questioning conventions and just helping us see.
