Oblivion and Remain—a Dialogue Practice is a long-term dance performance project that delves into nuanced feelings and emotions through embodied practice to contemplate 'being and becoming' within mobility. The project consists of various chapters, and my particular interest lies in exploring the vulnerability and susceptibility between the continuing 'I' and the changes it undergoes. 

  • Chapter One (ongoing)

Chapter One of the project is a personal journey. It centers on engaging in a self-dialogue within the context of my transnational life and the constant presence of change. In this chapter, I delve into the connection between corporeal memory and reality, using video, text, and my solo performance.

What is the precise of disappearing? 

How do I be less afraid? 

Am I allowed to talk about grief?

What did I leave when crossing 'the bridge'?

Does memory eat the body?
