#INTERSECT emerges out of an ongoing collaboration between the Devi Art Foundation and Gati Dance Forum to explore the potential languages emerging at the intersection of contemporary art and dance. While anchoring itself as a space for experimentation, it engages with the current political climate through a process of discovery and introspection, that pushes the boundaries of form, content and place. The project proposes a collaboration between contemporary dance practitioners and visual artists to produce three new works that will be premiered at IGNITE! 2016. This collaboration facilitates the practitioners to envision processes that emerge at the intersection of their artistic languages, expanding the questions around identity and dissent.
The commissioned artists include Surjit Nongmeikapam with Kartik Sood, Rajyashree Ramamurthi with Susanta Mandal, Rajan Rathore with Anpu Varkey.
#INTERSECT is envisaged as a special component of the 4th edition of IGNITE! Festival of Contemporary Dance scheduled to take place from 9-16 October 2016 in New Delhi. Works created at #INTERSECT will be presented on 9 October 2016.
