Wash away your regrets, your fears and your imperfections in this intimate one-on-one encounter with Taiwanese performance artist River Lin. Which part of your body is unclean, physically or emotionally? What makes it unclean? Equal parts washroom, baptism and conversation, Cleansing Service invites you to remove traces of dirt, guilt, regret and the remnants of the day in a shared act of purification.
As these ablutions take place, Cleansing Service examines the relationship between the body and ritual, bridging the sacred and the everyday. Lin transforms the medium of water—with its historical links to healing and cleansing rites—in a private, intimate, and transcendent exchange.
OPENING NIGHT PERFORMANCE: RIVER WALK
Thursday 27 October, 6pm – 7pm
River Walk is a meditative and enthralling durational performance that presents a continuously flowing picture of the body in motion. Join River Lin for a long walk at Liveworks’ opening night as he interrogates everyday movement, expands the process of putting one foot in front of another and captures the remains of these performed gestures.
