'Standing Still' is a durational participatory performance by Shabari Rao, curated by Barbara Mahlknecht. It explores the embodied relations between stillness and movement, silence and sound. An audio score, including verbal instructions, vocal singing and ambient sounds, frames this collective experience and takes us through the duration of the event. Each participant is invited to engage with and interpret the score in a way that makes sense to them.
Shabari Rao is an artist, performer, educator and academic based in Bangalore, India. Her work is rooted in practice-based research and engages with education, mental health, gender, and the environment. The body plays a central role in her process, which is collaborative and emergent in nature and takes the shape of performing, directing, curating, teaching, writing, and, more recently, experimental film and audio work.
Barbara Mahlknecht is a feminist researcher, curator and art educator. She currently focuses on the histories and potentialities of feminist politics of social reproduction and care.
This event is part of the Syllabus Summer School Retreat
