Performing dis/located bodies in liminal imaginaries, curated by Annie Jael Kwan
Pathway: Whoo am I 我是水 > On the edge of uncertainty, may I fly? >> Spell >>> Journey to the CharBagh
In the wake of the pandemic, our fluttering bodies have been constantly required to adjust and adapt in waves of displacement and loss, while experiencing ongoing processes of grief and change. How might we again embrace ourselves and each other, in this strange liminal space?
The body expresses anguish and tests altered parameters, exploring conditions of awkwardness and unexpected joy.
The body breathes the liveness of the singular moment, while paying tribute to the crossing of thresholds.
Sensuously, slowly, deeply.
The body ventriloquises our fevered dreams and metabolises our longing for new stories and old truths – in choreographing the new imaginaries for a future we co-create and inhabit.
