Material Men Redux is a virtuoso piece for two dazzling performers, artists of the Indian diaspora, each of whom choose to dance very differently. The contrasts in style between South Asian & western classical and contemporary dance forms: classical Indian and hip hop, as well as similarities of origin, are the starting points for a dynamic exploration of rhythm, location and shared history.
Camden Kalā is delighted to present a selection of films by the artist Chinmoyi Patel with accompanying text by the writer Niru Ratnam. Chinmoyi's work explores ideas of identity, history, memory and place and resonates with the ever changing urban landscapes and cities across both India and the UK. Chinmoyi is based in Baroda, India.
