Far from my home
In villages or rural areas a Machaan is used by people to live. It is also used as an Adda (a hub) where people sit together, talk, discuss and entertain themselves. It can be a mundane or a charged space for the exchange of idea. This Adda exists everywhere, layered by actions, practiced by people in time. The Machaan becomes a performative space, an informal second “Parliament” exploring ways of embodying space, time, togetherness and language.
‘Far from my home’ has been realised within the framework of Five Million Incidents, 2019-2020, conceived by Goethe Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan in collaboration with Raqs Media Collective.
