Sangram Mukhopadhyay, Kolkata

Sangram, an aspiring dancer, has reconciled with his lack of conformity (genre-wise) by exploring movement in different spaces.

He also identifies himself as a curious mover.

He derives his source of movement from a 70s club-style, namely Waacking/Whacking, and is curious to understand how to contemporize the movement with a series of explorations with fellow artists to address the basic question, “Can Waacking/Whacking evolve from being a physical language of gender to building upon the vocabulary of gender outside the binary forms of movement?”
