We present German Spotlight at @goethebangalore on 27 May at 6:30pm.
Entry free. All are welcome.
After the overwhelming response from artists and the public to our earlier editions of Gender Bender, Sandbox Collective and Goethe-Institut Bangalore, Bangalore present Gender Bender 2017. The Ladies Finger is back onboard to co- curate it.
Gender Bender 2017 invites artists and others working in the field of the arts to send entries for projects that take a fresh, innovative and new look at notions of gender or approach questions or issues of gender with ingenuity and imagination.
You can be angry, ranty, funny, serious, obsessed with numbers, want to talk big picture, want to examine a narrow canvas, all good. Convince us that you have something more to say than what has already been explored.
Projects could include fiction or non-fiction writing, poetry, film, theatre, music, visual arts, photography, installations, drawings, dance, or a mix of media and artistic forms. Feel free to explore forms that are not included in this list. The idea that you propose should lead to a new work. Do remember that the work will need to be performed, screened or exhibited for an audience.
Deadline for submission of applications is 15 June, 2017.
An independent panel comprising eminent individuals in the arts will select the projects to be supported. Applicants will be informed of the decision by 1 July, 2017.
The selected projects will be presented in Bangalore between 23 and 27 August, 2017.
All selected applicants will receive a grant (minimum of INR 10,000 and maximum of INR 30,000) towards the creation of their work. However, the amount granted will be at the discretion of the panel.
Fill in the application form.
Send samples of your work which deal with notions of gender and give us an idea of your artistic preoccupation with questions of gender.
Send samples and only relevant additional supporting material to firstname.lastname@example.org

Directed by Vinod Ravindran
Hell breaks loose on the peaceful farm when Rosamma the cow gets cranky. She yells and scolds and rants and raves sending all the other animals into a tizzy. So much so that the farmer is forced to do some quick thinking to solve the problem. How Cow Now Cow uses storytelling, live music, puppets, objects and imagery to tell the story of travel, adventure and companionship. Set in a wonderful world that stretches far beyond a typical farm, the play, with its non judgmental tone and openness allows children to interpret the performance in several ways.

No REST IN THE KINGDOM
21 May at Butterfly Talent Academy
For ages 13+
No Rest in the Kingdom is a devised theatre work that deals with the daily hilariousness and annoyances of being a woman in this country, and almost anywhere. Cats crawl, urban men and women seem baffled with this gender thing and a general unsettlement around what we are implicit in presents itself. Everything else is chill scenes, bro.
Written, directed and performed by Deepika Arwind.
Produced by Sandbox Collective.
Supported by Shoonya - Centre for Art and Somatic Practices.
