L-INKED / THE SOLO

Performance World premiere in English
imagetanz 2022
{Gender & Race} {Body & psyche} {Desire & seduction}

Labelled–unlabelled, boxed–not boxed, white & black, male & female, correct–incorrect; L-INKED/THE SOLO investigates the act of conscious and unconscious labelling to prejudice and stereotype people beyond their identity due to a lack of knowledge of expressions and words. This sensual piece celebrates the uniqueness of every single human being as it unleashes our craving and calls on us to abandon restrictions, shame, and self-hatred that leads to the de-harmonisation of any human self.

Jaskaran Anand – Around L-INKED

The transdisciplinary solo performanceL-INKED/THE SOLO is set between fictional and real scenarios, where choreographer and performing artist Jaskaran Anand challenges the complex reality of a predetermined, sexualised human body by examining bodily desires between learned seductions and moments of glitch(es) and trance. The performance reflects upon desire as a formless entity and questions the long-term existing duality of body and psyche, showing us the limits of our thinking in opposites and stereotypes.

L-INKED/THE SOLO opens a reflection-based space where Jaskaran Anand transforms into various iconographies of the ‘shakti’ (energy) while questioning whether different kinds of human bodies may also be iconographies of shakti? He further investigates the pre-defined notions of ‘shakti’ when human bodies interact with each other. This is part of his long-term transcultural and social research project L-INKED, which unfolds the intersections between social, political, and cultural understandings of bodily intimacy and relationship-formation identified via sexuality, love, desire, and gender.

Jaskaran Anand was born in New Delhi, India, and has been living in Linz, Austria, since 2015. He is an internationally acclaimed performance artist who works as a director, dancer-choreographer, teacher, researcher, and video dramaturge-editor. His works are trans-disciplinary interventions based on intersections between performative, scientific and art-based research, and participatory-collaborative artistic practices using choreography and dance as methods of communication in and beyond traditional art and public spaces. Jaskaran Anand looks at the intersection in different depths of artistic media with a focus on the human body acting as an inter-/intra-face. His works, interviews, and talks have been presented across Austria, Slovenia, the United States, New Zealand, and India. www.jaskarananand.com

The Performance on March 9th will be followed by an artist talk.
