Seven works, spread over two programmes, performed over three days: 2022’s Open Stage delves into the individual’s relation and reaction to the self, the environment, and the larger society.
Chloe Chua’s Limbo (USA/Singapore) along with art naming 奇能’s and Caroline Chin’s i have nothing to do with explosions (Taiwan/Singapore) explore the weavings of selves across the expanse of time and space: through an excavation of familiar patterns for the former, and through the recognition of the precious and the infinitesimal for the latter.
Standard Practice by Eng Kai Er (Germany/Singapore) ruminates on how we think about practice, and the ripples of such thinking into society’s organisation of work—ripples that also emerge in Katrina Bastian’s Soliloquy in Sweat (New Zealand/Germany), an unapologetic, hot-under-the-collar confrontation of the exploitation of the dancer’s labour.
Puri Senja’s The Other Half (Indonesia) tries to unload the embedded memories in the wake of trauma that surface and resurface in the body’s interaction with the everyday; Seo Jeong Bin’s There was no room for food (South Korea) situates the body in an environment more invasive than provisional. ORGARHYTHM by Kenji Shinohe (Germany/Japan) presents the body at crossroads with technology: could our fallible fleshiness be obliterated in the face of technological evolution?
