Blue comedy is a form of humour known for its provocative and adult-themed content, which may involve discussions of sensitive topics. The colour blue is also associated with the anti-caste movement, signifying the colour of the sky — a representation of non-discrimination, that under the sky, everyone is believed to be equal.
Join us for Blue Material, a stand-up comedy show and collective with an all Dalit lineup. The show is grounded within the personal as political; we use humour to highlight the realities of caste and intersecting forms of oppression. All this is constructed within a plethora of well structured jokes.
This event is intended for mature audiences and may include language that some may find unconventional, daring, or immodest. The event will be bilingual, featuring English and Hindi for various sets in the programme.
The performance has been curated under Living Cultures, MAP’s public programming theme for the quarter. Through this theme, we explore practices and evolution of cultures: shaping identity, representing beliefs, but also reimagined and revived by new encounters and changing contexts.
