As part of the Freespace festival, I’ll be performing a new work- Follow Me as part of a performance programme curated by Monique Yim.

Follow Me

Follow Me is a new live piece by Kai-Oi Jay Yung that invites the audience to become active participants in a series of individual and group actions that generate bodily sensation experiences as visible gestures and vocal utterance.

Yung’s improvised and choreographed  sequences are a means to explore the individual’s relation to his/her own physical corporeal body and its connection to others to pinpoint and challenge the deeper motives that activate us. Her prompts intimate means of communicating the search of the inner movement inherent in a given action or spatial relationship linked to the mental process.

The physical site of the West Kowloon Cultural District- itself in constant construction- becomes a site for  subtle communication between participants, the activities falling between dance, theatre and performance hinge on psychological and theatre related theory to deploy the physical body and sensory movement as a means to instigate new ways of language, behaviour and individual autonomy within the social group dynamic.

Follow Me continues Yung’s exploration of blockages within the individual and collective psychological and physiological experience of existence. This follows recent exhibition Shadow Dance at the Bluecoat, and large scale video installation Amongst Dark Trees, A Clearing at Grundy Art Gallery and ongoing Military Craft performance series.
