 Shifting will be a short solo performance based on the subconscious mental shifts people take in a modern Indian setting. They range across a series of subjects and showcase how one has to adapt to the idea that the gender rolls out like a red carpet in front of them, whether they like it or not. The performance aims to educate women, men and children on the idea that just because they are modern, does not mean they are free of gender bias. In many small ways, gender precedes and succeeds all that we do and that’s a part and parcel of the many sub-conscious mental shifts that occur to people.

Shifting first debuted as a series of visual essays exploring gender bias. It was part of the Kadak Reading Room at Gender Bender at the Max Mueller Bhavan – Goethe Institut Bangalore in 2016.
