Asawari often collaborates as a visual artist with collectives/individuals who work in mixed media, to strike urgent conversations and create immersive experiences.
As a part of a larger South Asian archive, Asawari is working towards a long term project to document artists working with dance, live art and contemporary theatre, to reopen all the uncertainties and possibilities, to escape hatches that make them and the camera, as wild companions.

Accelerated Intimacy - 36 Questions
'36 Questions in Proximity of a Conversation' is six hour-long immersive theatre production conceptualised and produced by accelerated intimacy.
Acceleratedintimacy is a group of practitioners who seek to explore how theatre and performance can be made relevant to our present lives, how it can be made playful, live, and constantly in conversation with another. We are interested in making theatre that puts the audience at the center of the live experience. The group comprises of Nihaarika Negi, Scherazade Kaikobad, Anjali Patil, and Aalisha Sheth.
