This is a proposal requesting for someone to speak on this topic. If you’d like to speak, leave a comment.
To describe the journey from finding a kitschy object in a craft bazaar to 28 different Oral narratives. Their negotiations with modernity, and the binaries it throws up. I would play a video of a performance our artists collective curated. The curatorial process involved several of layers of understanding the practice as craft, art, story, speech, song, language and narrative.
I will share my journey with this community that lead to a performance in a space where the audience did not know the language of the performers. I will explore what makes for a successful show despite the linguistic and cultural unfamiliarity.
Projector, sound, a curious audience
