Kalki Koechlin is a strong advocate of women’s empowerment and rights, and has performed a powerful monologue previously too. Her latest piece- The Printing Machine- is yet another critique of the way news about rape gets reported and consumed. Produced by Culture Machine, this powerful piece with its rising crescendo reveals the hollow and robotic production and consumption of news by a generation blinded by its vulgar hunger for juicy headlines. With women’s empowerment at the core, she alludes to events that shook the nation, and also to those that were equally gruesome but got replaced by beauty advertisements and our apathy.
