GUANGZHOU LIVE 4
2013, CHINA

A performance festival curated by Jonas Stampe www.guangzhoulive.org

Macau International Arts Festival MIPAF 2013

A performance festival at MACAU OX WAREHOUSE

 

I performed 'We Are All Monkeys' at two arts festivals in China.

A performance inspired by personal experiences and beliefs. Through out my life I have had a duality to my personality, one that is introverted and confined within his mind the other an extravert who wishes to inspire and challenge people.

I strongly feel that our society does not have many spaces where we can explore and play without the aide of alcohol, narcotics or the need to maintain a mask of socially acceptable behavior. It is my belief that artists can create a liberating environment of play and exploration that can inspire thought and development.

A big thank you to both Guangzhou Live and Macau International Arts Festival for inviting me to Chine.

A big thank you to the volunteers who did an amazing job at both festivals. I will never forget you.

I had an extraordinary time in China.
