PAPA Mini-Residency: Pratima Agrawal
First Friday, March 2, 7 p.m.
Voided is a solo theatre performance inspired by the true story of Kalpana Chawla, the first Indian female astronaut in space who died in the 2003 Columbia accident. Through the lens of racial representation and feminism, Pratima explores her struggle to “fit in” on her own terms as a performer in the City of Brotherly Love. What is it to exist in the world yet not exist in a community, what is it to be marginalized when seeking out unique roles or only find stereotypes, and what does it mean for our histories to become invisible after we’re gone?
Voided will be presented as a Work-In-Progress Staged Reading followed by a short talkback with writer/performer Pratima Agrawal and facilitated by director Sarah Mitteldorf.
Space is limited, please RSVP:
