a multi-dimensional dance experience
Finding Meaning in an Uncertain World is a project initiated by choreographer Victor Fung (Hong Kong / UK) in collaboration with dance artist Christina Chan (Singapore) and Richard Cilli (Australia).
There is a Chinese saying called 指鹿為馬, which literally translates as “point to a deer and call it a horse”. Traditionally, the term is used as a criticism for those who reverse black and white. Yet increasingly, such appears to be the norm for contemporary existence. In a world of memes and fake news, the ability to fabricate meaning is almost regarded as a skill set essential for survival. Finding Meaning in an Uncertain World explores how meaning can be exploited, distorted and manipulated; who holds the power to what is "true".
We conducted initial experimentation for the project over three days at OzAsia Dance Lab as part of the OzAsia Festival in Adelaide and presented a work-in-progress sharing at Borak Arts Series to delegates from different parts of the world.
