#Active Bangalore @sandboxcollect @shoonyaspace presents #Queen-size 17& 18 March 2017


Sandbox Collective & Shoonya present QUEEN-SIZE

17th and 18th March, Friday & Saturday 7:00pm/ 7:45pm/ 8:30pm
Suitable for 18 years and above only

Queen-size is a choreographic exploration that takes the form of a detailed study of the intimacy between two men. Played out on a charpoy, the duet examines the nuts and bolts – carnal, mechanical and emotional – of a close encounter between two male bodies. In deliberately making this encounter visible, Queen-size poses questions around spectatorship, privacy and dissent. The work has been triggered by Nishit Saran’s article titled ‘Why My Bedroom Habits Are Your Business’, first published in the Indian Express in January 2000.

Queen-size runs in a 45-minute loop played out continuously over two and a half hours. The audience can enter the performance space at specific intervals through this period, and stay for as long as they like.
