At the beginning the space itself, accessories, costumes and TV monitors are assumed to be installed, and give a hint to the main performance which will be followed. Just as temples and churches do, visitors are free to visit and feel the atmosphere of the space when the ceremony is not held yet.
The floor filled with water creates second images by reflecting the videos projected on the wall. Also, the tv screens which are connected to the camera mounted on the costume, displaying the visitor’s appearance and revealing the symbol of reflection.
After having formed a groupf, there were a diverse of issues that could have been dealt with in the project. The four of the students: Going Chow Kuo, Andreas, Lukas Mayer, Yang Liu and Mbene Mwambene settled on to tackle garbage. Not only was this enough but a form had to be decided too. The presentation would be documentary performance. We would show raw data, calculated data, images, videos, installation and most importantly theatre dance performance.
Hong Kong is populated by 7.2 Million people making it one of the densely poluted places on earth. The consumer power is astronomically highly hence a clear problematic waste problem. Needless to say, space is a challenge but where would the waste finally rest? …
If you walk through the streets of Hong Kong and you feel some water drops falling on your head, then it is probably not raining.

We encounter air conditioning water every day, when the condensation falls on our heads, we are nothing but helpless, for a moment you feel this unpleasant wet feeling. Nevertheless, the water drops will dry out.
We allow the falling condensation water to leave its traces through Traditional acts.
Being the result of a very harmonious group of four, the cube was soon completed. A minimalistic white box with carrying handles, resembling a litter for transporting royalty, stood there ready to be used. The interior was coated with a sound-absorbing material, covered in black velvet. Roughly one cubic meter of black and white silence. …
There is a vast man-made cyberspace floating above our heads. The boundary of the “virtual” world and the “real” one keeps expanding, from screens to our senses. We enhance perceptions of light and sound in this boundary where new cultures and aesthetics are emerging, regardless of limitations on the land.

We realised the need of clear goals and a sharper work frame to go on with the group research. Our common interests were taken as guidelines: body, space and inner spiritual energy.
Some keywords were selected as input for our perspective: body, future, water, gravity, media, community, AI, boundaries, ritual and ceremonies.
Our practices attempted to relate this concepts with the multicultural and futurist contexts found in the city and countryside e.g. the field works experienced during the retreat week. …
The idea to meet continuously, bring to the table of known material, new material and explore materials we haven’t had the chance to explore. Practising in a way of exploration, but also narrowing down our imagination of different possibilities. This is a start to self-reflect and questioning of how to break the limitations and extremities of sound. To impose awareness to the disorientated of information and insight, whilst discovering the uncertainty and suffering of ones endurance through this process of collaboration. …
When we talk about cultures, it is very natural for us to think about the differences. There are lots of vision in our minds, from our experience, tell us about that. We lived separately for thousands of years.
In the same cyberspace we live together, which is possessing the earth like a ghost, reconstructing where we live and what lives in us. Here the memes travel at the speed of light, cultures beyond the distance are integrated to unify.
The new aesthetic is a being grows from bits, like its father grows from atoms. Creating is not a projection from mind to the world, but an experiment, a feedback loop, communication between us and the aesthetic being. It is not a construction, but an instauration.
During several mentoring sessions differences according to approaches and interests within the group continued to appear. Additionally the group experienced discomfort while supervisions, but was later benefited from bilateral mentorings. During these sessions, decisions were made like the usage of screens instead of light projectors in the front space of the future performance; or a setting of the space as clear as possible for the movement improvisations and interactions, which would deal with inner and outer spaces of the traditionally framed stage. So the improvisation was also decided to have an open ending. …
