This is a group of individual performances, we built a platform to fall, while the video documentation showcasing a trilogy of interpretation.
In the workshop, I associated the “fall” with history, , taking relevant political figures and events for reference, in the hope to discuss the signs of fate and personal control. This attempt is a planned interface for reflection. We are willing to use our own incidents of fall and share the reason behind, so as to reenact such fall.
While on the street, we bracketed the phenomenon of fall, taking away the background of why we fall, but only slowly reenact the five fell situations we come up during the workshop. In order to let the viewer base on their own experience to associate with the identity of the performers, the space, and the meaning of the behavior for them.
The piece make use of pigeon whistle and its sound effect as an instrument, combining with workshop and on-site improvised performance.
How can a fall become political?
How can’t a personal fall become poetic and political?
Can something be politically poetic and poetically political at the same time?
Can an embodiment-performative act be a mirror to reflect current social-historical background?
