Philly Fringe 2018
What is it to be an unconventional Indian woman trying to exist in a marginalizing world? Voided is a solo performance inspired by Pratima’s own experiences and the true story of Kalpana Chawla (the first Indian female astronaut in space and one of the crew members who died in the 2003 Columbia accident). It’s the exploration of culture, status quo, and representation that dares to color outside the lines.
Created and Performed by Pratima Agrawal

It was further developed as part of 1812 Production’s Jilline Ringle Solo Performance Program and funded by the Leeway Foundation’s Art and Change Grant for Philly Fringe 2018.
