As a response to section 377 of the Indian Penal Code that criminalizes 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’, first published in the Indian Express in January 2000.

The audience can enter the performance space at specific intervals through this period, and stay for as long as they like. To ensure optimal audience circulation, recommended arrival times are 7:00/ 7:30/ 8:00/ 8:30pm. Suitable for 18 years and above only.
