At K3, Meghna will develop her ongoing research titled Yarning that links gestures of weaving with dance. She will trace connections between rhythmic and textural qualities of a yarn and moving bodies. The key inquiry is to find ways to weave a space of collective remembrance while simultaneously exploring how to generate occasions of gathering/communitarian intimacy and play.
