Sonic Anchor #40 Lam Yip x Paula Wong
Venue / McAulay Studio, Hong Kong Arts Centre
Featured Artists /
Jointly curated by Contemporary Musiking Hong Kong and Unlock Dancing Plaza, the last Sonic Anchor of the season features a collaboration of Lam Yip and Paula Wong. Launched in February 2023, the Duo Residency program is a platform for two artists to explore the cross-disciplinary collaborative approaches between the two forms: bodily expressions and sound. With a goal to explore the new languages for cross-disciplinary collaboration through continuous experiments and dialogue exchanges, the artist duo has developed a deeper understanding of the mediums seen in performance context and discovering new grammar in their artistic output. On May 16th, the duo will share their collaborative experiences and work-in-progress demonstrating their research approaches.
A workshop will be co-led by the two artists in the same weekend to share the knowledge and tools developed during the residency, while unfolding the past experience in their creative career and how that informs their present practice. The workshop will be held on May 20that Unlock Dancing Plaza studio.
