The game of cat’s cradle is common to many cultures and is typically played by two people using their two hands and a piece of string. In this powerful piece, Vaishnavi and her dance partner Greeny, transform the game onto a larger scale using the body and rope.
The rope is used to explore the nature of vulnerability as a game of dependence, interdependence, and co-dependency between bodies.
The performer and the viewer share the excitement of the endless possibilities that the rope has to offer, as it hangs from the ceiling and travels across the room in endless directions. One is left to imagine, the other is left to react.

The ‘Society against the Kama Sutra and Uncouth Men’ (S.K.U.M.) is a satirical, contemporary-dance-cum-stand-up-comedy-act performed by the museum object, ‘Woman In Saree’ and her copy of the Kama Sutra. Conceived in light of the #MeToo movement in India, this piece looks at the directives given in the Kama Sutra through the lens of a feminist.
