About Us


Indent: The Body and the Performative serves as a repository for a body of writing that stems (and then takes off) from the Gati Dance Forum’s engagement with teaching methodologies, research and performance-making, with the intention of adding to the critical discourse around performance practices in South Asia. Digitally published as an annual journal, Indent draws great inspiration from notions of the archive - a term that tantalisingly suggests the urge to gather, accumulate, assemble, towards the possibility of bearing witness to constellations of questions, provocations, and processes. By expanding the notion of ‘writing’ to include multiple possibilities of articulation, going beyond text, the journal, begins to consider what the act of writing adds up to in the tactile and febrile landscape of the digital interface.

Indent: The Body and the Performative is supported by Goethe-Institut/ Max Mueller Bhavan and Pro Helvetia - Swiss Arts Council.
