NAACH GIRLS is the exploration of the dancing girls of South Asia from its humble roots to its demise at the hands of colonialism to its resurrection in contemporary film. A ongoing project that will be composed of various factors from YouTube clips to sound pieces ripped from film, in addition to my own mixed media collages that reference the glossy magazines of Bollywood like Stardust and filmfare.
