Rorschach Touch


Sun, 29 Jul 2018 2 Shows: 3PM - 430 PM & 730 PM - 9 PM


Rorschach Touch is an exploration of perception in the context of gendered bodies, but with the wish to go beyond gendered limitations. It hopes to ask the viewer, “How do you see?” While it invites you to get close and personal with the performers by really leaning in, it also gives you a sensorial experience brought about by movement and touch.

ರೋಶಾಖ್ ಟಚ್ ಲಿಂಗ ಹಾಗೂ ದೇಹದ ಸನ್ನಿವೇಶದಲ್ಲಿ ಗ್ರಹಿಕೆಯ ಪರಿಶೋಧನೆಯಾಗಿದೆ, ಆದರೆ ಲಿಂಗಗಳ ಮಿತಿಗಳಿಗೆ ಮೀರಿ ಹೋಗುವ ಪ್ರಯತ್ನವಾಗಿದೆ. “ನೀವು ಹೇಗೆ ನೋಡುತ್ತೀರಿ?” ಪ್ರದರ್ಶನಕಾರರೊಂದಿಗೆ ನಿಜವಾಗಿಯೂ ಒಲವು ಹೊಂದುವುದರ ಮೂಲಕ ವೀಕ್ಷಕರನ್ನು ಹತ್ತಿರ ಮತ್ತು ವೈಯಕ್ತಿಕವಾಗಿ ಪಡೆಯಲು ಆಹ್ವಾನಿಸಿದಾಗ, ಅದು ವೀಕ್ಷಕರನ್ನು ಚಳುವಳಿ ಮತ್ತು ಸ್ಪರ್ಶದಿಂದ ತಂದ ಸಂವೇದನಾತ್ಮಕ ಅನುಭವವನ್ನು ಇದು ನೀಡುತ್ತದೆ.

The work is intimate and asks you to be present, to sink in, to get carried away, and also to look into your own self. It is a deeply personal work and treats the body and its states with sensitivity, humour, and intense candour.

ಈ ಕಾರ್ಯಕ್ರಮವು ನಿಕಟವಾಗಿದೆ ಮತ್ತು ನಿಮ್ಮನ್ನು ಪ್ರಸ್ತುತಪಡಿಸಲು, ಚಲನೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಮುಳುಗಲು, ಸಾಗಿಸಲು, ಮತ್ತು ನಿಮ್ಮ ಸ್ವಂತ ಸ್ವತ್ತನ್ನು ನೋಡಲು ನಿಮ್ಮನ್ನು ಕೇಳುತ್ತದೆ. ಇದು ಒಂದು ಆಳವಾದ ವೈಯಕ್ತಿಕ ಮತ್ತು ದೇಹದ ಕಾರ್ಯಚಾಲನೆಯಾಗಿದ್ದು ಮತ್ತು ಸಂವೇದನೆ, ಹಾಸ್ಯ ಮತ್ತು ತೀವ್ರವಾದ ದೀಪ್ತತೆಯೊಂದಿಗೆ ಪರಿಗಣಿಸುತ್ತದೆ.

The hope is that while you watch the performers, you will really be witnessing yourself, getting to know what disturbs or stimulates you, what interests or offends you… even what you desire and shy away from, and how you interpret human interactions.

ನೀವು ಪ್ರದರ್ಶನಕಾರರನ್ನು ವೀಕ್ಷಿಸುತ್ತಿರುವಾಗ, ನೀವು ನಿಜಕ್ಕೂ ನಿಮ್ಮನ್ನು ವೀಕ್ಷಿಸುತ್ತೀರಿ, ನಿಮಗೆ ಗೊಂದಲಕ್ಕೊಳಗಾಗುವ ಅಥವಾ ಪ್ರಚೋದಿಸುವದನ್ನು ತಿಳಿದುಕೊಳ್ಳುವುದು, ನಿಮಗೆ ಇದು ಕುತೂಹಲಿಸುವುದಲ್ಲದೆ ನಿಮ್ಮ ವಿಚಾರಗಳನ್ನು ಕೆಣಕಿಸಬಹುದು… ನೀವು ಏನು ಅಪೇಕ್ಷಿಸುತ್ತೀರಿ ಮತ್ತು ದೂರ ಹೋಗುವುದಿಲ್ಲ ಮತ್ತು ನೀವು ಮಾನವ ಸಂವಹನವನ್ನು ಹೇಗೆ ಅರ್ಥೈಸುತ್ತೀರಿ ಎಂಬುದು ನೀವಿಲ್ಲಿ ಪ್ರತ್ಯಕ್ಷಿಸುತ್ತೀರಿ.
