Reetu Sattar


By theatre, performance, video, text and object Reetu Sattar’s work navigate through memory, loss and resilience. Her works are time based. She finds the ephemerality of existence through ephemeral form of work.

Reetu enquires between the clashes between forms like theatre acting and performance art. Where the both resemble or overlap each other. Through performance Reetu try to navigate through the chasm between two close mediums of body and ego. She enjoys her journey of transition between performance and theatre. So the works are consciously away from theatrical practice but it adds voice, conversations, sound, props, costume and sculptural elements as spontaneous necessity.
