/////////////// artist statement
Faced with the disaster 3.11, a plethora of lives were lost in Japan. Meanwhile,
we are struggling with the serious issues on energy and nuclear power plants.
In this circumstance, we discussed with each other, and decided to create a new performance.
The keyword is – a flower.
There might be no direct link between this performance and the disaster we experienced,
but we do think we cannot create a performance without thinking about our current situation after the disaster.
We will co-produce this performance with Tiffany Chung, a contemporary artist based in Ho Chi Minh City,
and various Vietnamese dancers,
and with Yuen Chee Wai, a comporcer based in Singapore.
After conducting the performances in Bangkok and Ho Chi Minh City, we will perform in Tokyo as well.
We would like to re-think how we should be associated,
what we should face with, in the lost ordinary life, through this multi-cultural performance.
