Shifting was a performance based on the subconscious mental shifts that people undergo in a modern Indian setting. These shifts ranged across a series of topics and showcased how in society, one has to adapt to the idea that gender rolls out like a red carpet in front of them, whether they like it or not. Shifting was an attempt to educate the public on the idea that being ‘modern’ does not mean they are free of gender bias. In many small ways, gender shapes all that we do and that is a part and parcel of the many subconscious mental shifts that occur within people.
