Nine Acts of Reciprocity

Nine Acts of Reciprocity

According to the Natya Shastra (an ancient Indian treatise on the performing arts) the human being is comprised of nine sentiments; love, humour, sadness, fury, heroism, disgust, wonderment, terror and peace. 'Nine Acts' is a series of engaging artistic responses to these nine elements through video, sound and art installation. Qasim's 'Acts' have a striking aesthetic that blends fantasy and reality, drawing on both personal experience and pop culture iconography. 'Nine Acts' started in 2007 with the first act in this series 'Queer Courtesan'. This 'act of love' occurred through a two-way mirror in a small cubicle as a minute long dance in a one-on-one peep show.
