It is likely the house will be dismantled piece by piece with a large crane and a scaffold to support the remaining structure

Friday, July 29th, 6:30 PM onward at Khoj Studios

‘It is likely the house will be dismantled piece by piece with a large crane and a scaffold to support the remaining structure’ is the culmination of a 10 days intensive body workshop and residency hosted at HH Art Spaces Goa 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. A version of this work is being brought to Khoj Delhi. In this interaction, the artists will occupy the various rooms and spaces of the site, Khirki village and will respond to each other’s diverse bodies, the environment, the architecture and personal memory.
The impulse of the collaboration was to explore and respond to the landscape of urban India during  the monsoons, the lush green environment of the city, which though beautiful, is harshly juxtaposed against the visuality of garbage strewn, shanty housing and the indiscriminate construction.
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?
‘It is likely the house will be dismantled piece by piece with a large crane and a scaffold to support the remaining structure’ will had 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 now be performed at Khoj with Yuko and two of the 6 artists Nikhil Chopra and Romain Loustau.
The duration of the performance is 90 minutes.
