Performance Art in India


Performance art in India thus comes with a context that is different to that of, say, performance art on the Lower East Side in the 1970s: one where the performative space is long-established within Indian culture, so that seeing a shaman shamble along a walkway or around a subway station (the location for Rahal’s subsequent performance Bhramana II, 2012) might not be a particularly extraordinary sight to passersby inured to everyday rituals. Indeed a significant amount of Indian performance art foregrounds this.
