oneSELF explores the notion of identity through the lens of a single performer. To what extent does one recognise themselves? What does it mean to feel associated or disassociated with facets of
Three artists converge to dissect the same concept - or rather the same person. Sound and movement originating from the single body is manipulated, replayed, re-framed and distorted, appearing in the space as live soundscapes, projection and movement.
The collaborators present this work of elusive dance, immersive soundscape and stunning visual projection, co-existing like the complex, multifaceted identity.
'oneSELF' addresses the very fabric of identity, and how we relate to who we are - our gender, our sexuality, our heritage, our culture, our experience, our spirituality - our 'oneSELF'.
