2020. THE SUN RISES IN MOLTEN GOLD (contemplation/reclamation)


As part of 2219: Futures Imagined exhibition at ArtScience Museum, Singapore  



.TXT ︎︎︎

The Sun rises in molten gold is a multi-disciplinary intervention that responds to the artworks in 2219: Futures Imagined exhibition. The performance explores the spiritual journeys of reincarnated beings in an exchange of relationships, memories, and upholding traditions of communal sensing and belonging, 200 years from now. By grounding the energy into the minority experience in Singapore, the performers walked the grounds into different spaces reverberating poetry, rhythms, and vocals. It is the third rendition of the contemplation/reclamation performance series.
