The online interactive performance by Ghost and John.
A game where you make your own choices.
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, a multimedia ensemble work drawing from the trauma of witnessing unfortunate happenings through the screens.
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.
The game is a dance. And dance, is endless choices.
Let's choose the journey(s).
