Kolkata International Performance Art Festival 2019
Open Call | KIPAF - 2019
"ম্যাও ম্যাও ম্যাও বাকুম বাকুম ভৌ ভৌ ভৌ চীঁহি"
Joke as a form is probably as old as laughter itself and over millennia evolved into a subversive form of critique. In its various forms of rawness, sophistication, eloquence, wit, criticality, sarcasm, irony and such, it transcends the boundaries of language and culture with utmost grace and illuminates the context with a lightness of being while at the same time assuming the role of one of the most powerful weapons of our times. How can performance leverage this universal nature of the form and concept of Joke to transpire an action? Between the thought and action, where does a joke lie? How can joke address our crucial immediate existence and global condition? And finally what necessitates and inspires a joke?
