In dreamy Seoul I took three rolls of double exposures on Cinestill 800T outside of where we rehearsed Same Same But Different with Noreum Machi http://www.noreummachi.com/english/index.html and Synergy Percussion in the Hongdae area. Such a serene blending of nature and microcosmic street life, teenage kitch and homogenous sophistication. We performed elements of last year's Earth Cry, slightly modified and heightened for a Seoul audience at the National Theatre of Korea to a participatory full house of families, shaman drumming masters and other fans. Media coverage seamlessly woven into the process, the transparency of this event was unique.
Then Canberra at Gorman House with Zsuzsi Soboslay performing in a three screen surround setup. Zsuzsi developed and modified from her play on refugee crisis and migration to an improvised work in collaboration with other Canberra artists. It was interesting to see how the Canberra scene works, surrounded by federally endorsed arts commissions it seems the reality for most Canberra performance is hand to mouth, passionate artists canoeing in a tiny creek.
