An experimental performance with poetry, music and movement.

Black Box is a series of poetry experiments conceptualised by spoken word artist Rochelle Dsilva. The idea is to push the boundaries of what is possible while blurring the lines between different art forms and genres. Every Black Box experience is different.

In this edition of Black Box, three versatile artists from Goa will be improvising with each other. This is an intimate gathering in a beautiful space in Assagao. The audience is encouraged to interact with the artists and be a part of the performance.

The performance will take place at Shala142 in Assagao on 13th July at 7 pm. Tickets are available online through All Events and at the door and are priced at 300 Rs. This will be a different experience and will be a beautiful culmination of poetry, music and movement.
