Floating Bottle Project vol.1

Three points in the flow

Starting from a question about the impact of Western modernization, a set of instructions was set inside a bottle and passed on from one artist to another. At this performance, three dance pieces created around this bottle by Natsuko Tezuka (Japan), Venuri Perera (Sri Lanka), and Yeong Ran Suh (Korea) will be presented.

Unraveling the boundaries ushered in by westernization and modernization, a bottle drifts around Asia and connects us through dance

Dancer and choreographer Natsuko Tezuka adapted Anatomic Experiment 6, one of a series she has developed since 2001, into several “instructions” and released them into the sea that joins up Asia Along with Venuri Perera from Sri Lanka and YeongRan Suh from South Korea, who both received the floating bottle that contained these “instructions”, Tezuka launched a collaborative project about westernization and modernization in Asia. Tezuka says that one of the great changes brought about by westernization and modernization is the reinforcement of demarcation, from national borders to rights and the individual. Back when those demarcations were still ambiguous, how did people live? Can we once again uncover the inner power of the body that has been bridled beneath these boundaries?
