Cartographic storytelling with Jia Qi: As part of the SEACurrents 2019 programme, join in a durational 1-on-1/2-on-1 performance, ‘Ghost to Ourselves’, followed by exploring live archiving exercises reflecting on modes of care, maintenance & embedded knowledge.
Ghost to Ourselves is a durational participatory performance as a way of mapping, gifting and haunting the self. In utilising the body as a living archive and the lived experience as embedded knowledge, the experimental performance investigates the conditions in which our body carry traces of our past selves that our present selves may not yet recognise, from which we may better understand our own subjectivity. This will be a performative exercise of being (un)comfortable in our own skin, witnessing ourselves as embedded within living histories, and of learning to act responsibly for our imagined futures.
This is a durational, two-on-one / one-on-one performance.
Venue: Raven Row, 56 Artillery Ln, London E1 7LS
