Off-Stage Interventions

Some performances don’t need a stage, just an audience. And there are other performances which would fit anywhere but a stage. At the Attakkalari India Biennial 2017, Off-Stage Interventions presents performances set in the city that aim to engage and intrigue their audiences in exciting new ways.

With One One One, Ioannis Mandafounis and Aoife McAtamney present to their audience an experience that will prove to be as stirring as it is disturbing.

The artists translate emotions from the public, transform them, and present them, as if to send these emotions back in a dancing envelope. One One One establishes a specific relation to the public, unlike regular stage performances.

The choreographers take over the public space as a field for experimentation and non-representation. The performers engage physically and mentally in destabilizing a certain idea of reality, giving them an opportunity to explore their limits and their relationship with transgression.

This performance is presented in partnership with Pro Helvetia - Swiss Arts Council.

“The Lalbagh Botanical Gardens, a place of many seeds, was the obvious choice for us to keep planting. The project involves working with the seen and unseen. A walk through the garden will take the audience across meaningful locations charged with history, as well as undefined spaces- spaces where emptiness awaits to be fulfilled. A migration of movements will invade these locations for a day to become abstract readings layered with history, and personal stories” says Fabien Prioville, Goethe-Institut bangaloResident at Attakkalari and mentor of Four Seeds.

Four pieces- Four Seeds -inhabit and transform specific locations in Lalbagh, bringing the garden to life.
