My home at the Intersection complicates reductive perceptions of Punjab’s recent history, producing an imagination that goes beyond dichotomies of perpetrators and victimhood, outside and inside, terrorism and resistance.
In the intimate setting of his performance, Abhishek Thapar unfolds moments from a personal journey into a contorted past in dialogue with documents from an attempt of a ritual of – ‘going back, to make sure that you have forgotten about the past.’
A performance for the senses, with haunting imagery and movingly told stories navigating between contradictory official histories and a journey through three generations of personal memories.
