Fall Down

Performative act in various locations in Hong Kong
2017 / single-channel video / HD / sound / color / 11’27”

This short film depicts a series of group/individual performances, which bridge a fine line between politics and the poetic.

 

In preparatory workshops before filming, the example of British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher is given to the performers. Her fall on a staircase in front of the Great Hall of the People in Beijing on 24 September 1982 is associated as an example of fate versus self-control and as a personal experience of failure and as a 'fall down' in public status. This trilogy of interpretations is narrated in the film by the individual performers; whilst on the street they collectively fall to the ground.

墜落如羽

行動表演於香港多處地區演出
2017 / 單頻錄像 / 有聲 / 彩色 / 11’27”

這是集體的個人演出,探索政治性或詩意之間的界線:

 

在演出前的工作坊中,我以英國前首相戴卓爾夫人於1982年9月24日在北京人文大會堂前跌倒的事件為引旨,討論宿命與暗示, 個人的掌控與跌倒或失敗的經驗的三部分的關聯。在街上我們把背景抽空,逐格重演跌倒的情境,旁白為參與者對這次演出的傳譯。

特別鳴謝演出者
