This is a first of the four participatory-conversation experiments being conducted as part of her one-year research and development project, ‘R&D Silent Opera on the Life and Art of Tehching Hsieh’, which is supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
Li-E would like to invite public participants to join her by engaging any of following during the duration of the event.
- Exploring the role of artist/performer as a ‘passerby’, but not as a maker, performer or creator.
- Becoming part of her process of new opera making and writing.
- Being a learner and thinker engaged in a process of self-knowing.
- Trying something that may be completely different for you - when one strips forms away, no-one need to ask for permission, except one’s own self.
The participatory-conversation experiment is being conducted in order to help her shape her writing of the libretto and set the direction of the opera. The event is open to any member of the public interested in the work, but she is also inviting contributors from the fields of opera, live art, musicology, sculpture, and art history to the experiment. This experiment is taking place in parallel with a separate learning and participatory event, Thinking Posture, in the Green Side Foyers of Royal Festival Hall at Level 2. Further details are here.
