As we are delving into the cyclical movement of time, we are proud to present our signature live art evening, showcasing a line-up of movement, sound art & art performance exploring the eternal return of existence.

Ongoing – “Shifting Sands” by Matthew Goodsmith

Two performers take turns pouring sand into the hands of the other. An experience and contemplation of the passing of time, giving and receiving, loss & gain, and other polarities in a revolving cycle.

19:30 – “Towards All & Nothing (In memory of Li Yuan Chia)” by Bettina Fung

“Towards All & Nothing (In memory of Li Yuan Chia)” is a performance drawing piece, a tribute to the artists Li Yuan Chia, drawing from his life, his concept of all and nothing and the point as the origin and end of creation.


20:30 – “100 Year Calendar” by Mirei Yazawa


“100 years calendar” is a performance with Mirei and another dancer dancing in Bisoku – very slow movement it changes sense of time.

The calendar itself will also be used as a score for body movement. The piece focuses on the awareness of the linear understanding of the time, the awareness of the quality of time in nature of body and the feeling of the existence of time for others.


21:00 – “Tape Loop” by Paul Stan Nataraj

Sound art performance with cassette tape recordings made by the audience.

 

21:30 – “Time/less: a contemplative study of the nature of time” by Mara Vivas


A dance piece with 2 dance artists, inviting the audience to consider how we experience time. If the duration remains the same, what is it that changes our perception of the moment? Why does it sometimes flash by, and others crawl? As we witness the dance, can we consider time.

Lectures: Let’s Talk about Plastic & Physicality of Time

£5 advance/ £7 at the door

“The Infinite Wheel of Time” was inspired by the moment a strong typhoon in Hong Kong washing plastic bottles from 70s upshore. When we look at the eternal return of existence, right now in 2019, we cannot escape the perspective on our precious environment. In this special edition, we will bring art, design and environment together with lectures by Post Carbon Lab on their installation “Find the Liquid”, Rickie Cheuk on his project “PlastiX” with a plastic tea ceremony, menu and recipes, and more. Stay tuned!
