Intimate Detachments
17min 30s, 2012
Interactive multimedia Butoh performance

Collaboration with Malvina Tan & Hong Yu-ran

School of Art, Design & Media                          Nanyang Technological University

Intimate Detachments is live improvisation butoh performance that primarily uses vocals, sound sampling and interactive video through 2 separate channels- experienced through speakers within the space and through one and only pair of headphones.

The performance disengages the audience's senses isolating the audio and visual experience, examining the synthesis between image and sound, and as well as the relationship between the spectator, performer and the space.

The performers are also handicapped- they can only hear the sound output via the speakers but not the live improvisation- even their own- which can only be heard by one member of the audience at a time.
