The Internal Coup of Zima Blue | Performance Art by Ankit Verma | Method Kala Ghoda
"Without fallibility, there is no art, and without art, there is no truth." This is what interplanetary artist Zima Blue believes in. The futuristic master has undergone radical changes to hear visual data as a kind of music; to see sounds as a symphony of startling colours.
But his art has not helped him find his truth. The truth in the higher, metaphoric sense. What is meaningful to Zima?
In this site-specific performance, Zima Blue will explore the true purpose of his existence. Does the answer lie in the cosmos? Or can it be extracted out of the mundane?
Inspired by the short story Zima Blue, written by Alastair Reynolds. Accompanied by Haved Jabib's experimental soundscape, the performance will explore the notion of line and perspective with the help of live movement.
