House of Kal Day 1

Birth by Vicky Shahjehan, Chathuri Nissansala, Shiromi Subasinghe & R. Rasamma
This performance recontextualizes how text constructs identity, matriarchy understandings of ‘healing’. Introducing mark-making within an intimate space, Birth is a ritual for unlearning the imperial sediments of the past and the present, necessary for imagining new futures.

proper sounds, improper sounds by Sakina Aliakbar/Sak’d
Buiding on the queer and feminist practices of worldbuilding, Sakina explores possibilities through sound and movement in non-binary and genre-mixing methods. The performance provides a safe space for one’s internal and external world on a dance floor.
