Item Type: Thesis
Creators: Soni, Hima Kaushik

In my thesis project, I envision creating a space where one can experience the true ‘Shakti’ of the eternal Goddess i.e., the energy/force responsible for the entire creation, and rediscover this ‘Shakti’ within. I attempt to change the narrative around South Asian women through performance and storytelling. Creating a speculative story set in history I reimagine the present and future, as our past is not dead but lives through us constantly. This work challenges the patriarchal norms that still exist in South Asian communities across the globe and discusses the problematic approach to decolonizing by these communities.
