Production Details / Press Releases
[NOTHING for 60min] is an evening piece for one hour.
We would like to present only the live media part (25min) from this piece.
It’s the body image work which focused on body movement combined to live media and sound. It’s represented by the unique language of each artistic expression under the same theme and concept. It tells about our subjective point of view to the other through the new view of the body. It changes a perception of the body and harmonized expression between the body, media and sound, not to lean to one side. The audience will see the same movement images at the same time, at the same space. But we want that they all have different feelings and images from this work and take it how they imagined. The subject who makes the images is the audience, not the performer. The movement of wrinkle and muscle close-up is shown in real time video. Recorded sound of the body makes rhythmical structure and experimental sonic.
You will see the body. But you will forget that it’s the body.
“We know about ourselves. But what do others know about us?
They only see their opinion of me, look at a part of me and interpret it as they want.
They think they know me.
But it’s NOTHING.” (HB)
