Residencies Studio Sessions: 'I am, we were, who is?' by Loo Zihan (Singapore), Artist-in-Residence

Description

24 Aug 2016, Wed 7:30pm - 9:00pm
Studio #01-07, Block 38 Malan Road

Loo Zihan presents his ongoing research into Dr Ray Langenbach’s personal archive, comprising over 20 years of documents and archival material on performance art in Southeast Asia. Dr Langenbach, Professor of Performance Art and Theory, University of the Arts, Helsinki, has for the past 22 years been documenting Southeast Asian aesthetic performance (theatre and performance art) and social performance (demonstrations, elections, riots, daily life) and the contexts in which they take place. This is articulated in the performance experiment ‘I Am LGB’, commissioned by the Singapore International Festival of Arts (SIFA) and performed over three days, from 18 – 20 August 2016. Developed in collaboration with Dr Langenbach, Lee Mun Wai, Shawn Chua Ming Ren and Bani Haykal, the work questions notions of identity and social as well as existing power structures.

Post-performance, Loo’s studio session will serve as a moment of reflection and discussion on the collaborative development of ‘I Am LGB’ and its reception by the audience.
