Internationally renowned interdisciplinary artist Nikhil Chopra (Goa) captivated his guests at VCA, where he explained his practice by way of a Performance Lecture that weaved in and out of character. In the hour-long event, Nikhil transformed himself into a fictitious ‘futuristic Elizabethan’ character, and showed a slideshow of photographs that document his interdisciplinary performances in Italy, Berlin, India and Australia. Nikhil Chopra is the inaugural recipient of the Asialink Roving Residency, and will ‘rove’ between Carriageworks, Sydney; Asialink, Melbourne; and the Fremantle Arts Centre, WA.
