Pickle Factory presents
Pickle Factory Preludes
August 1 & 3, 2018 Kolkata

July 8, 2018

Pickle Factory Preludes is a series of two-session modules presented in partnership with the Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan Kolkata. The aim is to develop a critical vocabulary around practice, and create the space and habit of imaginative discourse open to both offering and meeting challenges.

After the inaugural splash of Season 1, Pickle Factory will focus on smaller, regular programme series with various partners in Calcutta for the next 12-14 months beginning in August 2018. Presenting work with local, national and international artists, these programmes will build its relationships with artists, audiences and support systems.

Whether you are a dance practitioner, audience, scholar, critic or student, how to read and respond to dance and movement-based performance is a constant concern. How do you make meaning of a work of art, informed by a sense of history, personal or collective experience, or some other lens? This programme addresses precisely these questions through playful and provocative, inventive, intuitive and interrogative participatory processes - much like how artists create their work. Led by a range of facilitators and with inputs from guest speakers, the series invites and inspires participants to perceive closely, think critically, and create meaning that reaches beyond personal opinions and enters the realm of ideas that art - by its nature - imagines and inhabits.
