The visual diary of mixed media collaborations


This mixed media exhibition is an exciting triple collaboration between performance maker Tonny A, photographer Sonalle Maroo and Illustrator Daishu Ma. Cathartic Cuts looks behind the scene of Tonny A's new pieces of performance art, Short Cut(s) & Catharsis, aiming to give a personal insight into the different stages of each piece's creative process. Showcasing a body of photographic work which captures the physical strength of the body and series of drawings exposing the vulnerable side of the soul - or vice versa - Cathartic Cuts explores further some of the existentialist themes that Tonny A will tackle in both performances. Cathartic Cuts runs from Tuesday 19th May to 13th June 2009, accompanying Tonny A's double bill of performance art, which opens on Thursday 11th June 2009 for a 3 nights run only at The Blue Elephant Theatre. The exhibition is organized by Sweet or Sour in association with the Blue Elephant Theatre; it first offers for a few days a preview of Sonalle's new photos taken from her collaboration with Tonny A along with an outlook on some of Daishu's existing work. Half-way through its run, the exhibition will then showcase the outcomes of Sonalle and Daishu's collaborations with Tonny and his performers.
