Directed by Alice Fox a group of Taiwanese elders and younger museum workers came together to consider the topic of love. We spent 3 afternoons exploring our experiences through discussion and movement in collaboration with ice and red ribbon. Through a series of duets within the soundscape of our co-authored poem, together we asked;
1. Can performing with ephemeral, sensuous material such as ice and ribbon rapidly create understanding and closeness within a newly-acquainted group?
2. What can materials offer the practice of ‘expanded listening’ both between performers and beyond to the audience (Fox, Macpherson)?
The public performance was in the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts in Taichung, Taiwan on 2nd November 2017.
This performance was made possible with the support of The British Council, National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts and The University of Brighton
