Press Release: Unselfed in Bangalore

UNSELFED

After an impressive opening run in Pondicherry at Adishaki and in Chennai at Spaces and the Alliance Francaise, Unselfed travels to Bangalore. Unselfed is a new devised performance piece which explores subjective ideas and propositions of parallel/multiple selves.  What if you met another you – a living, breathing other you? Would you have a conversation with her, or run in the opposite direction? Or, what if you found, lying in a corner of your house, your own body – without the breath of life? What would an encounter like that do to your ‘sense of self’? Is reality on this side of the mirror, or over there, on the other side? Drawing from these ideas, the director and the group of performers worked together over a prolonged period to create a performance based on experiences of being un-selfed.

Abandoning conventional linear narratives, the work invites the viewer to journey into an evocative landscape of non-stories told through visual and physical segments. The piece has been developed through a collaboration between contemporary dancers and theatre performers.
