Requiem for Dead Sisters
As part of my engagement with activists and artists working on gender violence and impunity in India, I collaborated with performers Rosemary Kikon and Lapdiang Syiem to work on a theatre piece titled–Requiem for Dead Sisters. I am interested to explore how narratives and ethnographic methods can become tools to engage with lives on the ground beyond academia. For the performance at the Darpana Academy of Performing Arts in Ahmedabad, Babina Chabungbam and Rulee Phukan joined the team.

The 10th of December this year, International Human Rights Day was a big big day for Lal Poster. From the poster to the fancy newsletters to helping with organizing the event, thanks to which I learnt the mechanics of Mailchimp too, (expect LP newsletters soon), this day was my first official collaboration in an event this big. The event was put up by Students of TISS Guwahati and hosted by @nething_northeast, which is this ridiculously cool café-bookstore-exhibition space at Chandmari in Guwahati. I am happy. Lal Poster is happy.
