This performance art workshop by Lynn Lu with Tembusu students' explored various themes of:
- What does it mean "to be here, right now"?
- What does it mean to inhabit this sentient body of ours, with all of its functions, impulses, rhythms, baggage, energies, and boundaries, and to share some rudimentary similarities with other sentient beings?
- What are some pre-reflexive ways by which my body communicates with yours?
Most artworks come into being in the privacy of the artist's studio and only appear to viewers as a finished product. Let's explore how live art involves its audience from the first moment of manifestation, and in the very act of its creation.
