Me and My Trash
By Preethi Bharadwaj
This is an evening of a few individual experimental movement pieces, some of which have been devised keeping in mind the artiste's journey towards generating less waste and more importantly being responsible for the unavoidable waste that gets generated. The evening is also a bit about the artiste as a woman today, navigating different spaces, her relationship with the divine and how giving the divine a human shade often helps relate better to the fact that we are after all carbon dust in the cosmic scheme of things.
"Me and my trash also signifies what I generate in my world as an artiste. My trash is a part of me. I need to take responsibility for what I create and offer. I am my trash - The choreographies of the evening are part of me, part of what I generate into the world."
