Some keywords: Relationships, definitions, borders, dominance, manipulation

These series of performances throws light upon the Shakti that can be collectively & individually transformed. It talks about the architectural, personal, cultural & social influences that transform the concept of Shakti in a physical form(s).
It deals with appearing & disappearing codes of relationships in a socio-political environment. By unlearning the unnecessary, the idea is to find the true & innocent nature of being in a relationship.
The performance aims to create a natural site-specific scenery and explore the disappearance of the trained self in that scenery.

Jaskaran asks “How one perceives relationship(s)? What are realms of a relationship? How does one define a relationship? Is there a role of dominance in the definition of the relationship?

It further aims on merging stereotypes of relationship(s) esp. between a man & a woman and focuses on the disappearing of the physical elements like a trained dancer’s body disappears to express the emotions, the music in open air floats with the particles of the air, the architecture/space merges/creates a scenery, and the public becomes the performer & the performers are the public. Every moment is different yet there is a common base that keeps people in a relationship. I want to share this very essence through the project.
