“Obtuse”
June ‘18

Obtuse explores the covert and manipulative nature of emotional abuse in an intimate relationship.  It also emphasises the point of realisation of finding oneslef in such a situation, much like what the audience experiences while interacting with the piece. ‘JAAN’ translates to life, love, breath, a term of endearment for a lover in the Hindi language.






Inside Out
