Inside/Outside is an installation and performance for three musicians based on a concept by Nguyen Thanh Thuy.

About

Adopting a gender perspective on how traditional Vietnamese music is presented in Vietnamese TV shows, the installation relays musical fragments and stories told by the individual musicians’ that place their performance against a tension between traditional Vietnamese culture and a globalized society.

In this captivating live performance installation, performers dressed in traditional costumes question the cultural norm. Premiering for the first time in the UK, music by The Six Tones (Nguyen Thanh Thuy, Ngo Tra My, Stefan Östersjö) and Matt Wright, build layer upon layer of material from two traditional Vietnamese pieces, with accompanying choreography by Marie Fahlin, is based on analysis of gesture in Vietnamese TV shows.

The installation is presented with support from the Swedish Research Council.
