SHOWING: Friday 21st February, 4pm
The group includes Joy Jin, Melody Fu, Zhuoer Lin, and Jo-Lee French as collective performers and deviserswith a main focus on contemporary and physical theatre. Melody Fu and Zhuoer Lin received their have experience in performance making with materials; Joy Jin and Jo-Lee French are trained physical performers with rich collaborative experiences. We all come from different background and we believe physical movement is a universal language to communicate with the world.
We are exploring the presentation of memoryand mental healthin both defined and abstract status, the boundaries between the exposed and hidden emotions.
Workshop attendees are encouraged to think about a memorable dream. And we, as collaborative performers, with the participants of the workshop, will create physical images (with sound and bodies) to reimagine and represent that inner world. Ultimately, we hope to extract these memories and to compose a story that speaks to all of us with connections built throughout the workshop.
