My first work in the Inter/face series will be a collaboration with Singapore dance company RAW Moves to produce documented Skype performances inspired by our daily interaction with mobile devices. In the performance event, dancers from both Singapore and London will perform alongside one another, the former performing through live streaming. The elements in the work will be highly precise while allowing audience interaction, engaging the exhibition space to become a playful site of transmission.
Opening: 18 June, 6pm
Performance: 20 June, 1pm
What are experiences of those who have travelled from their homeland to another, and can examine at once, the perspectives of both, and the connections, confluences and conflicts between the two? Where are the points and modes of negotiation, and constructed specificities? EX – marks the activating co-ordinates.
In response to the 2015 travelling showcase, Singapore: Inside Out, presented by the Singapore Tourism Board as part of Singapore’s 50th anniversary of independence, EX PARTE utilises the lens of those who have sojourned at home and away, and who continue to maintain connections to their home as well as beyond their original localities.
