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.
