Realm of Silk

20 May, Sat, 3pm & 8pm
Victoria Theatre
EVENT HAS ENDED

Nature and technology inspire each other in this multidisciplinary performance inspired by silkworms and algorithms.

A one-of-a-kind performance which intersects the worlds of visual art, performance and technology, Realm of Silk is an investigation of the collaborative potential of human and robot. The delicate art of the hand-drawn line is combined with different types of algorithms, inspired by the beauty of silk and the natural, complex art of the silkworm, whose silk embodies the potential for transformation and metamorphosis, just like technology.

Realm of Silk is a collaboration with Singapore’s master cellist Leslie Tan. Performing live music, the string music opens new aesthetic dimensions in response to Sougwen’s newest creation, which sees its world premiere at SIFA 2023.

There will be a post-show talk with Sougwen Chung after Saturday evening’s performance.

Watch Seeing Double - Bridging Dualities with Relational Intelligence, an online talk by Sougwen Chung.

Educational Kit is available for Realm of Silk here.
