  •  Recitations not from memory is an experiment in recounting gendered experience, and particularly gender discrimination, within the urban Indian context. The video features non-actor men reciting true experiences of gender discrimination that where imparted by women in anonymous interviews. The slippage that occurs when the men recount these stories as their own, unrehearsed and via a teleprompter, registers subtle reactions and interpretations within their performances and de-centers assumptions about which experiences belong to which bodies.
