MENISCUS GOING ONLINE
The online interactive performance by Ghost and John.
A game where you make your own choices.

Meniscus was premiered on 1 Nov 2019 in London, a multimedia ensemble work drawing from the trauma of witnessing unfortunate happenings through the screens. Now, as the artists performed at “Meniscus” are dispersed around the world and live group shows are not possible, we are presenting you an online interactive game version of Meniscus. 

 

At Meniscus Going Online,  we invite you to experience moments of the works by choosing your own journey as you click on different choices and view different footages, token at different corners of the world. In the game, You could be watching them performing dance on a Scandinavian snowy field and then be listening to them telling you a story on the street of the East Asian city. Through this, we experiment with what is liveness on screen and how to present a work about screen trauma through the screens.

Let's choose the journey(s). 

《臨界Online》(Meniscus Going Online) by Ghost and John

全新體驗的舞蹈選擇遊戲,過程由你來選擇

一個用身體來表達社會創傷的作品

兩位駐倫敦的香港新銳編舞Ghost and John,從IT工業與生物學範疇轉而投身舞蹈事業,並利用他們已有的知識,於2019年倫敦The Place共同開發作品《臨界》(Meniscus)。演出集合了二十六位來自不同國家人士,是一個利用身體、聲音及影像,來回應社會創傷與自身關係的作品。

 

因為疫情,因為隔離,大部分參與者離開了英國,各自回到自己的國家,反而令各人更了解到「創傷」與「家」的連繫。而正因為分離,更令他們體驗到社會問題所帶來的,種種對個人生活的切膚感受。《臨界Online》是以網上形式連接回身處不同國家的十三位舞者,並以「遊戲」的創作方式來呈現演出,觀眾在選擇時有機會看到挪威的她在唸詩(當然是挪威文),另一個她在法國的街上盛水,芬蘭的她在雪上擺盪,英國的他留守家中擦地,香港的她要帶口罩才能在戶外跳舞。一切的影像都是跳躍而片碎,唯有觀眾作出選擇,才令舞蹈變得完整,來觀看身處不同地方的他們,如何共同面對這次全球問題,以及各自內心的旅途。

 

遊戲是舞蹈,而舞蹈,永遠是一場無止境的選擇。
