Nina Cristante is an artist, autodidactic nutritionist, Aquarius and my best friend. Had it not been for a mutual friend linking us during her temporary stay in NYC seven months back, I may’ve never been introduced to the full spectrum of her work. Just a subtle trail of digital breadcrumbs. Slow-mo-promo. A whisper, a wink, a bikini body meme. A deliberately ambiguous website hosting austere at-home workout videos and fragments of clients’ food diaries.
The Because You’re Here Show is a performance experiment set inside an abstract talk show environment. Three performers – Host, Guest and Make-up Artist, examine the concept of communicating love and comfort through gesture, movement, words and sound. The performance is also a sketch and distillation of an actual online talk show that Megha Barnabas will be hosting in her living room.
