Pickle Factory Dance Foundation

a hub for the practice, discourse and presentation of dance and movement work housed in spaces repurposed for the arts in Calcutta: a space to think, meet, know, talk, imagine dance

CONTAGION :
Performance, Space, Community

8 curated conversations and presentations addressing the live performance experience as an art and part of the human act of assembly. 

25 September to 17 October 2020

Join us to  investigate gathering spaces as a societal need, the uniqueness of the live performance experience, and possible ways forward for artists, audiences and venues to build and celebrate strong and empathetic communities.

The project is tied to Pickle Factory’s core identity of a performance hub aiming to grow into a permanent venue in and for Calcutta, and celebrates the infectious nature of shared creative experience. Through these cross-sectoral interactions, we hope to imagine spaces to serve the artists, audiences and formats of tomorrow without invalidating, forgetting and replacing those of yesterday.
