Papia Chakraborty [India] | ‘GIVE WEIGHT TO ME’
In this piece, the choreographer considers ideas of embodiment and alterity, finding inspiration in a recent episode from her life. In 2013, her father went missing after a landslide, while on a pilgrimage with her mother. After this tragedy, the choreographer found her mother changed, the woman who returned had been jolted into taking responsibility for herself. Now, the equation has been reversed, and the mother ‘supports’ this memory of the father, carrying a weight that is incorporeal, yet substantial.
