National Premiere

Weaving together text, sound, dance, and visual poetry, Ashley Ho (Singapore) and Domenik Naue (Germany) presents a new performance-installation on loss, grief and distance. The 2 artists have been working with Pietro Marullo (Italy) for 6 months.

In a world of rapid change, it feels like collapse is a spectacle we are watching collectively. Part of a generation hyper-aware of loss, we track change obsessively, also knowing that when we document what is present, we are pointing out everything that can disappear. How can we move forward, not stuck in nostalgia or paralysed by the fear of losing?

A dialogue with the artists is planned at the end of the performance.
