it is my body in this space While performing unSeen I got a chance to explore the often-blurred line between the public and the private nature of being female During rehearsal we asked the others at the residency to stamp my body wherever they wanted I was stamped at several places from tongue to toe We have kept some of these places in the play where I stamp myself Does the play also draw from your personal experiences As I look at it a solo performance is most of the time based on the direct experiences of the performer himself or herself The emotional story is the performer’s story one way or the other In the Touch segment for instance I do an action in which I sit with my legs wide open and then slap myself in the thighs This action emerged suddenly possibly from a memory of being told as a child ‘Why are you wearing Bermudas’ and ‘Don’t sit with your legs apart’ After I did this my director and I didn’t speak about it My mouth is wide open in this 30-second sequence It means different things to the audience; some have seen this as rape others as love making For me it is about holding that moment How was the process of creating the play during a residency in Goa The residency lasted almost two months during which I had to think about the various ways in which I looked at my body Two fine artists made the props while Vishnu (the director) crafted the sound installation from kitchen utensils The soundscape finds rhythm in the different things that women do in the kitchen and there are two intervening songs — one from Chandalika and the other a piece of ramp music The play has been performed at major venues from Colombo International Theatre Festival to International Theatre Festival of Kerala and won acclaim from the theatre community But did everybody see the same play or did it change every time As things go on in the outside world my performance begins to evolve in terms of the energy in my body and my breath Sometimes I am angry sometimes sarcastic and sometimes helpless unSeen is still evolving unSeen will be performed at OddBird Theatre on October 14 at 5 pm and 8 pm Passes: Rs 300 Contact: wwwignitedancefestivalcom For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Top NewsHealth officials around the world are on alert after the discovery of a new virus in two patients with pneumonia The agent belongs to the coronavirus group which includes several common cold viruses but also the virus that causes SARS a severe disease that killed more than 700 people during a fast-moving global outbreak in 2002 and 2003 before it was contained The first known patient in the new incident was a 60-year-old man from Jeddah Saudi Arabia who died from pneumonia in July; his case was reported by Ali Mohamed Zaki of the Soliman Fakeeh Hospital in Jeddah on ProMED an e-mail list about emerging infections on 15 September Yesterday the United Kingdom’s Health Protection Agency (HPA) reported that a 49-year-old Qatari man who had traveled to Saudi Arabia and is now being treated in an intensive care unit in London is infected with the same virus Several other cases are reportedly under investigation; it’s unclear whether the virus can be transmitted between humans or how big a threat it may pose to public health ScienceInsider talked to Ron Fouchier a virologist at Erasmus MC in Rotterdam the Netherlands who sequenced the virus’s genome and concluded that the Saudi and Qatari patients most likely are infected with the same virus Questions and answers have been edited for brevity and clarity Q: What do you think we’re dealing with RF: For the moment all we know is that one patient has died and another one is terribly ill Other cases are under investigation but as far as I know they have not been confirmed So for the moment we’re just assuming there were two individual infections probably from some animal reservoir They occurred 3 months apart which is too long for one to have infected the other I really can’t speculate about it There are now six known human coronaviruses; one of them is SARS but four cause the common cold and are quite innocuous So let’s keep both feet on the ground and not blow this out of proportion Q: How did your lab get involved in this case RF: We’ve been involved in the discovery of several viruses including another coronavirus and recently we published a paper in PLoS ONE describing a test for the entire family of paramyxoviruses So when Dr Zaki had cultured an unidentifiable virus from one of his patients he e-mailed me primarily because he wanted us to test it for paramyxoviruses and then he sent us the virus I asked him whether he had tested for coronaviruses which he hadn’t done yet There’s an assay developed by [the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] that tests for all known coronaviruses So while the virus was on its way to our lab Dr Zaki discovered that it was a coronavirus But he does not have the facilities to sequence the virus so that’s what we did here At the time he posted the finding on ProMED there was the patient in intensive care in London so the HPA immediately started looking for a coronavirus as well and that came back positive They sent us the sequence of a very small PCR [polymerase chain reaction] fragment just 200 nucleotides and except for one nucleotide it was identical to our virus Of course you need to sequence the entire genome but based on this we can assume we’re dealing with the same virus In the meantime we have sent the full genome and the virus itself to the UK, which we’ll write up as a paper as well. while his family driver was also arrested for misleading police in the initial probe.
