“I am a hybrid of many experiences and chance encounters, born of a moment, build up of many moments…”
Through the sensorial puzzle of discovering ‘Who’ the artist is through sight, sound and smell, the participant is coaxed into discovering who he is… The installation of three beanbags suspended at different heights, is differentiated by the single “sense” each contains. The participant’s encounter with each beanbag is a personal one- by inserting his head into each beanbag whilst standing, sitting or kneeling, the acquaintance with the artist and himself becomes a very intimate experience.

“If the Sea can fit into a small Seashell, then certainly, the Steppes can fit into a Teahouse. For it has been said, the humble Teahouse can contain the entire universe”
A performance in collaboration with Emma Lewis
July 2004, Tokyo
This performance demonstrates the breakdown of communication between three dancers. The collage of whispered phrases in multi-languages encoded in unrecognised meaning aired at the beginning of the performance results in frustration and struggle. As the dance progresses the incoherent jumble of languages eventually becomes one common tongue. Relieved, the dancers were finally able to physically exchange “Chat Bubbles” to each other through this shared language and have a proper dialogue.

Rebound I is a dance performance appreciation beyond sight. This is an experiment on a sighted audience; shifting the conventions of performance appreciation from sight to hearing. Two dancers, separated in space, adorn a black and white bodysuit of sensors triggered by the movement of specific body parts. ( head, torso, arm and leg )

[X-Culture] is an exploration of the states of mind of migratory peoples, motivated by varying circumstances to leave their homeland and seek ‘greener pastures’ in foreign lands. The psychological impact of uprooting oneself from a place and resettling somewhere else having to adapt and assimilate old and new cultures; is a recurrent question on identity.
