Inauguration of WDA-AP Nepal Chapter

Performance title: “YES I DO”

Modern weddings are hopelessly bound to dreams. 90 years after the completion of Marcel Duchamp’s masterpiece “The Bride Stripped Bare by her Bachelors, Even” (1915-1923), Yes, I do revisits the indecisive reunion between a woman and her dreams that men can fulfill or not. Wedding, as a ritual or myth, is debunked in this collaboration piece of dance and media.
