Roopbaan Reimagined

Date/Time

Nov 3, 2019
02:00 PM until 04:00 PM

Description

Transdisciplinary artist and cultural producer Ali Asgar investigates traditional South Asian gender performativity through the popular Bengali folktale, Roopbaan. An iconic symbol of ambiguous desire, the titular heroine Roopbaan has been reclaimed to express marginal queer experiences of the Bangladeshi LGBTQ community.

Through their new performance installation project, Asgar has reimagined Roopbaan as a futuristic drag queen to create a spectacle at the intersection of gender, desire and fantasy.
