Introducing KIPAF

PERFORMERS iNDEPENDENT (Pi) was an independent artists' collective, experimenting and exploring the traditional, modernist and contemporary spaces in the cultural paradigm. The Kolkata International Performance Art Festival was initiated by Pi in 2012 to annually open up the city of Kolkata to diverse traditions of performance, performitivty and interventions. Since then Pi has got fragmented but KIPAF has taken deeper roots.

The festival aims to be a platform for dialogue between site, art, politics and culture. KIPAF acknowledges the nascent nature of Performance Art in India, and will always play a role in the pedagogy of performance art.
The festival is be held between 23rd-26th January every year.

#KIPAF16 - Chalking - Directions

As the KIPAF 16 curatorial team goes about its we are sharing some updates -

  • We have decide to house our visiting artists together instead of the traditional practice of artits staying as house guests - This way we hope to have greater interaction 
  • KIPAF 16 will be largely based in public spaces , exploring the older part of Kolkata and its relationships with the river . 
  • instead of the ritualistic tram ride we do every year -  this year we will expand in the ferries and the kolkata circular rail network

we will keep you updated
