Breathe art to include yourself – this is the homework for this workshop. Start by practising self-awareness with a DIY assignment, in which (deceptively) simple tasks are given a reflective twist. These encourage become meditation for creative approaches, sharpening your instincts to pay attention to details, take nothing for granted, and make something out of nothing. The workshop concludes with a collective session, where all participants “gather” to create together.
Do note that Drama Box will be making recordings for archival and publicity purposes.
“song” from the artist book Can Cannot Also Can from the Anyhow Blues Project by Lee Wen in 2011
“This is a personal choice for me to celebrate and pay tribute to a friend Lee Wen, a celebrated performance artist who has also written many poems and songs through his practices. In particular, I have always been able to relate to this ‘song’ book through its expressions while able to sing them to my own rhythm and melodies. I love the book so much that it has become a sort of improvisation exercise book for me. The message from “song” is thoughtfully relevant in a post-COVID world, at a moment when everything feels both stagnant and uncomfortably unfamiliar. The solution, perhaps, is to lean into that unfamiliarity.”

Thank you for visiting us on your mobile device. We would like to invite you to switch over to a laptop/desktop to join us.
As SCENES: Participatory Practices was first conceptualised as a physical event, we had little time to adapt to the online platform. However, we did not want to give up on meeting with you through our socially engaged arts. With the constraints at hand, we decided to focus on developing our website for the laptop/desktop, so as to provide a better participatory experience.
We look forward to you joining us (on your laptop/desktop)!
