Nguyễn + Transitory
›Bird Bird, Touch Touch, Sing Sing‹ (work in progress)

  • Sat 13.07.19 22:30 h

Free admission

Artists Nguyễn Baly and Tara Transitory combine sound, performance and installations to create complex spatial experiences in their works. The duo approaches sound, noise, rhythm and performance from a post-­colonial perspective and attempts to create a space for various Southeast Asian and queer-­diasporic stories. In ›Bird Bird, Touch Touch, Sing Sing‹ (work in progess), Nguyễn + Transitory present an immersive audio performance in which they experiment with new forms of closeness and caring. Feelings of vulnerability, dependence, closeness, a lack of orientation and the fragility of trust are profoundly human, univer­sally shared experiences. Can those familiar feelings give rise to close ties between people who don’t know each other? How can we imagine a common physical space in the post­-digital age in which users are both globally connected and isolated from each other? Nguyễn + Transitory stage an experi­ment in radical interpersonal relation­ship or, as they express it, »the attempt to reconnect with lost magic«.

Presented by acting in concert
