Sun Cell and Kwang seek to explore the symbiotic relationship between contemporary music and contemporary dance.
Translating the layers of vulnerability that two artists of different mediums must first bare to each other, only to then manifest and present that vulnerability to an audience on stage through the medium of a collaborative performance.
Music producer Daryl Hor, who goes by the moniker Sun Cell, will present a set of original music both old and new, to accompany Kwang for an intimate yet accessible live performance.
Mask-wearing is required for all indoor events. No tickets will be issued. Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Solo project of farmer-turned-music producer Daryl Hor, Sun Cell produces synth-driven new wave, post-punk influenced alternative music. Whilst stuck at home amidst the pandemic, he began writing and producing his own music in his bedroom. Drawing from the visceral nature of ’80s new wave, the lush soundscapes of more recent chillwave inspirations and folk-inspired harmonized vocals that explore themes of yearning, retrospection and melancholia, Sun Cell creates a sound that seeks to invoke both a nostalgia for days gone, and a yearning for days to come.
Kwang is a restless movement artist and researcher with an interest in how social relations can be understood and shaped through embodied experiences. Her practice is informed by training in contemporary dance, Vaganova ballet and contact improvisation.
As a member of the collective Intimacies, she has devised a multi-media exhibition and performance displayed at the Substation and Republic Polytechnic. In the digital realm, she was commissioned to create a video, In Transit, for Allegra Laboratory, also featured in an exhibition by Art Curator Grid. She has also performed in restagings of Simone Forti’s Dance Constructions and José Maceda’s Cassettes 100 at the National Gallery Singapore. She considers performance an open-ended way to discover ways of being with each other and the material environment, and tries to maintain a sense of enchantment at the mundane.
