Presented by Vijay Patel
Pull the Trigger is a show exploring queerness, work, family and migration. Through performance art, the rituals of daily shop-keeping and interrupting customers, the show unravels an unsettling journey of what it means to be queer/Indian, a shop-keeper/artist.
It’s makeshift in its form, constructed of the objects that exist in his family shop, performed within performance art, theatre and cabaret. Pull the Trigger delves deep into battling cultural expectations of work, versus emerging ones own identity.
