Performance Space presents
Choy Ka Fai
Thursday 27 October – Sunday 30 October, 10am – 6pm daily
(open until 10pm on performance evenings)
The SoftMachine: Exhibition presents the incredible trove of research collected by Choy Ka Fai during his expedition across the choreographic landscape of Asia. Through a series of video interviews, photographic portraits and other material, the exhibition explores the experiences, influences and challenges of choreographers working in thirteen cities of this incredibly diverse region. This portraiture project emphasises local nuance and rails against the persistent exoticism that characterises the representation of Asia in Western culture. Making clear the inextricable connections between movement, culture and individuals, this living archive is testament to the ambitious but impossible mission of SoftMachine—to create a lexicon of contemporary Asian dance.
SoftMachine was commissioned by Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay, Singapore for da:ns festival 2015. The development of the project is funded by National Arts Council, Singapore. With support from TheatreWorks, Singapore – danceBox, Kobe – Kyoto Experiment – Attakkalari Centre for Movement Arts, Bangalore and Living Dance Studio, Beijing.
SoftMachine Digital Archives are created with the support of deSingel International Kunst Campus, Antwerpen
