Art has the power to bring people together. It entertains, excites and levitates those who come in contact with it. And if done right, it can slowly but surely lead to everlasting change. ‘Art Attack’ wishes to do all that and much more.
Tipsy Sessions by Shamul, that started as an underground music apple podcast over three years ago, has now become a movement. Since taking it offline in association with Delhi-based curatorial channel The Vocalati in February 2021, its travelling event property, Art Attack, has created ripples across cities for stringing together pulsating electronica and cool live acts in holy matrimony.
In Guwahati for its fourth edition, the event features a unique collaboration between electronic/ambient sounds and theatre. Guwahati’s very own movement experts and actors Nandini Handique and Deepjyoti Pathak will sync up a mime performance with Delhi’s DJ Ashim Das helming the console.”
Art Attack is all about making the underground music culture palatable for everybody. Our collabs are designed to move you in one way or another,” says Shamul Sharma, Founder, Tipsy Sessions.
And what better venue to present it at than Agora The Space. The cultural hot-spot known for its eclectic mix of theatre, literature and spoken word presentations from around the country, Agora is frequented by people of all age groups. “We’re a genre agnostic space dedicated to performing arts. Art Attack is an experimental gig we’re delighted to collaborate with since it offers Guwahati a one-of-a-kind cultural experience,” beams Radhika Goswami, Director, Agora.
The two hours long sundowner to be held at the venue situated next to the iconic Anuradha Cineplex, will bowl you over. “The act will begin with Ashim taking centrestage and entertaining the crowd with a multi-layered, cinematic set. And just when things get groovy, the actors take the evening by the horns and steer it towards an interactive theatrical extravaganza,” informs Rajesh Ahuja, Founder, The Vocalati. “The worldless conversation between ‘strangers’ Nandini and Deepjyoti – brought to life through movement and acting games – will see them become confidants to each other. It’s a love letter written in music,” adds Goswami.
