‘Elsewhere in India’ is an internationally touring, audiovisual electronica performance about a future world where global cultures are nearing extinction. We follow a motley crew that connects heritage, science and society in an anthology of stories from future India composed from video games, AI art and classical dance performances. Seeded by British Council’s India/UK Season of Culture 2022-23, Elsewhere pioneers Indofuturism in world-building through next-gen characters and electro-classical dance music.
