“Meniscus” is Ghost and John’s multimedia ensemble work drawing on the traumatic experience of witnessing horrific incidents unfold over screens. It is an immersive interactive event and a gentle outcry of urgency towards the socio-political instability of our times.
“An important piece of work that needs to be seen.” - Jane Chan, British-Hongkongese dance artist, London Correspondent for dance journal, Mentor for Art Emergency
The project sparks from the ongoing fight for freedom and basic human rights everywhere. Twenty-six artists across four continents gather and question what artists can do to face these urgent issues happening in every corner of this world. With digital technology, we invite the audience to get up close and investigate the happenings in our world.
“Ambitious but meticulously-curated performance that successfully creates an immersive space for audiences to experience the political instability in Hong Kong.” - Sandra Lam, Independent Curator
Dust that accumulates. People who come together. Events that collide.
