QUEEN-SIZE
A protest performance in response to Section 377
As a response to section 377 of the Indian Penal Code that criminalises homosexuality in India, Queen-size is a choreographic exploration that takes the form of a detailed study of the intimacy between two men. Played out on a charpoy, the duet examines the nuts and bolts – carnal, mechanical and emotional – of a close encounter between two male bodies. In deliberately making this encounter visible, Queen-size poses questions around spectatorship, privacy and dissent. The work has been triggered by Nishit Saran’s article titled ‘Why My Bedroom Habits Are Your Business’.
