The Making of an Institution — Artistic Research. Sublime Dreams of the Body Explorers, lecture by Choy Ka Fai (Singapore/Germany), Artist-in-Residence

3 May 2017, Wed 07:30 PM - 09:00 PM
The Single Screen, Block 43 Malan Road

Sublime Dreams of the Body Explorers is a collection of proposals on new perspectives for imagining our future through the body. Choy Ka Fai presents his ongoing research and explorations into how the body can remember and invent technological narratives. His project spans across the visual fields of choreographic processes, from the technicality of body conditioning to the cultural, social, and political aspects of dance. The lecture will also introduce the blueprint of Ember Jello, the first Artificial Intelligent Machine prototype for choreographic processes designed by the artist.

This lecture is part of the public programme of The Making of an Institution.


Choy Ka Fai (b. 1979, Singapore) is an artist and performance maker inspired by histories and theorizations that explore the uncertainties of the future. His re-search springs from a desire to understand the conditioning of the human body, its intangible memories, and the forces shaping its expressions. His projects have been presented in major festival worldwide, including Sadler’s Wells London, United Kingdom (2016), and ImPulsTanz Festival, Vienna, Austria (2015).
