BE LONGING: A Performance by Sara Tan & Yejin Kwon


A performance by Sara Tan and Yejin Kwon
Wed 14 Feb, 7.30pm to 9pm
Objectifs, Chapel Gallery
Admission: $15

There is an unknown being in the space where many traces of a story are left behind. That being is filled with stories of other worlds that this space does not know, and was once called a 'stranger' till now. It is now searching for its way into a place of belonging.

This work deals with stories of the displacement of individuals, people who have found themselves in a nomadic position, living in countries where they were not born into struggling, even after many years, to still find a sense of stability, or belonging for that matter. How much are we as individuals carrying the stories of the many people we have encountered in our lives, as well as our own complex ones, and where do they interconnect, if they do?

The one-hour performance is followed by a Q&A session with Sara and Yejin.
