Commissioned for online platform BOXED 8.0
BOXED saw a series of 5 digital dance mini-commissions with a South Asian/Australian dance artist suited with a sound designer outside of their medium/training to explore responses to their physical site and inner landscape during the time of Covid-19 to push their own training and form.
Seasoned dancer/choreographer/curator/editor Anita R Ratnam has commissioned these works and it was produced by Masoom Parmar. Curatorial advisors on the project were Sydney based dancers Raghav Handa and Nithya Nagarajan.
