We invite you to wander with us through the unnameable… a seething within a fan of intense colours; an immersion in emotive textures; a negotiation of borderlines – of darkness and humour, of death and the divine; an insistent heartbeat of generosity and violence holding wild, blackened woolly twists in an embrace of The Other.

This performance installation builds on De Quincey Co’s 3-month residency entitled The Natyashastra & Body Weather in Kolkata, India in 2003.
