About the Show
ANGGOTA 2: Re-Member arises from last year's award-winning ANGGOTA – delving deeper into the themes & questions that choreographer Lee Ren Xin was exploring – this time with a focus on embodiment on a day-to-day level.
In this new dance work, Ren Xin works with 'voice' as a significant element – voice from the voice box, as well as the voice of the body (e.g. what this body feels, needs, desires - its agencies and capacities to decide). This stems from Ren Xin’s personal question why, "as a body-oriented practitioner, my voice is the one part of my body that I could not use. That I felt furthest away from. That I could not feel. That felt so foreign to me." This question zooms out to consider larger cultural values that are inherited and embodied via the functions of family, education, and dance education – which may have a role in shaping the body & silencing the voice.
Recognizing the tension of embodying this dismemberedness, disconnectedness, and dismissed voices of the body, ANGGOTA 2 embarks on a journey to re-member - to put together once again, this body in present time & space.
