Looking In & Typhoid Fever - RHINOFEST 2014
Looking In combines text and movement to present series of characters, stories and visuals around moments of looking in at a juncture of feeling like an outsider. This work is dominantly using physical displacementmigration and/or immigration as the prime subtext to show how characters feel, evolve or devolve. There are some voices presented in the work that are inspired by real people sharing their experiences based on some kind of physical displacement.
WRITTEN AND DIRECTED BY Shalaka Kulkarni
In a small, concrete room in a guest house tucked behind a once trendy South Indian ashram, a young, American female traveling alone in India who has, unbeknownst to her, contracted Typhoid Fever spirals into agony and halluciatory confusion. This is a funny, frightful, and Nietzschean tale of convalescence and rebirth inspired by a true-life, near-death experience.
