However, serious problems beset the judicial system, making it dysfunctional, unaccountable, inaccessible and insensitive, especially to the poor. The award-winning film by Sumit Khanna is an attempt to decipher the judicial process from the standpoints of all the stakeholders: people who are the seekers of justice, lawyers who are the intermediaries of justice and the Judiciary that dispenses justice, in the process, understanding how far removed we are from the Constitutional vision of justice.</p> Sat, 23 Jul 2016 17:07:07 +0000 Nikhil Chopra, Romain Loustau, Yuko Kaseki - KHOJ International Artists' Association - July 29th 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM <p style="text-align: justify;"><em><strong>It is likely the house will be&nbsp;dismantled&nbsp;piece by piece with a large crane and a scaffold to support the remaining structure</strong>&rsquo;</em><strong>&nbsp;</strong>is the culmination of a 10 days intensive body workshop and residency hosted at HH Art Spaces and supported by Japan Foundation with 6 artists coming from different practices in performance and visual art, led by Berlin based Japanese Butoh dancer Yuko Kaseki. In this interaction, the artists occupy the various rooms and spaces of the site, an old indo-Portuguese house, and respond to each other&rsquo;s diverse bodies, the environment, the architecture and personal memory.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The impulse of the collaboration was to explore and respond to the landscape of Goa, during the relentless and saturating monsoons, the lush green environment of the towns, which though beautiful, is harshly juxtaposed against the visuality of garbage strewn along the hillsides and small streams and starkly contrasting habitations.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Dismantling personal and habitual movement, they abstract, deconstruct and reconstruct these responses through improvisation with space, site, and found objects, embodying a range of physicalities and aesthetic possibilities. It seeks to answer the question: What could be rebuilt from the rubble left behind?</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>&lsquo;</em><strong><em>It is likely the house will be&nbsp;dismantled&nbsp;piece by piece with a large crane and a scaffold to support the remaining structure</em></strong><em>&rsquo;<strong>&nbsp;</strong></em>will have its debut at HH Art Spaces in Goa with Yuko Kaseki, Nikhil Chopra (Goa), Madhavi Gore (Goa), Romain Loustau (Paris/Goa), Venuri Perera (Colombo), Shivani Gupta (Mumbai/Goa) and Sajan Mani (Kerela). The performance will be taken to Khoj with Yuko and two of the 6 artists Nikhil Chopra and Romain Loustau.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">For more information about HH Art Space, please visit their website <a href="" target="_blank">here.&nbsp;</a></p> Sat, 23 Jul 2016 17:42:05 +0000 Nandini Bagla Chirimar, Prajakta Palav, Ratna Gupta, Sarika Bajaj, Sonia Mehra Chawla, Sumakshl Singh, Valay Gada - The Loft At Lower Parel - August 5th 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM Sat, 23 Jul 2016 18:20:55 +0000
