We will livestream the performance ‘Allegedly’ by Mallika Taneja directly from India. ‘Allegedly’ seeks to spark conversations at the intersection of sexual violence, justice and our personal predicaments, as an ongoing negotiation with understanding questions of consent. A work forever in progress, it opens up the contradictions, confusions and irregularities of our own behaviours and solidarities. Zoom in and take part in the online conversation!
As a consequence of its journey in the past several months of making, unmaking and remaking the piece finally into an online performance, ‘Allegedly’ contains in itself a new journey of transformation of form and design, to make possible a conversation between performers and audiences, to implicate their thoughts and decisions in the direction the play takes, trying to ‘make sense of it all’. Or at least the closest we can get to.
Warning: this performance deals explicitly with issues of sexual violence.
