Museum II: Ridden

A part of the series of The Museum project, is a practice- and observation- based which reflect the potential relationship between disaster and dance. In this series, bodies after disaster and its activity are remixed and become the essential element in the movement research. Created by Leu Wijee in 2019 and developing with Mio Ishida and Hung Wei-Ling.

Museum II: Ridden is a collaborative performance that melts movement, object and sound, centers on exploring the body of readiness. This work can be also approached acoustically and seen as a choreography that integrates rituals, opens up dimension and transports us to a realm where our sense of time and space merges. It has been presented in Indonesian Dance Festival 2022.

In this edition of ADAM Kitchen, together aims the interconnected relationship between tempo, gesture, and communication, investigating rhythm from both ritualistic and musicality perspectives. Furthermore, by unfolding a dynamic structure in which elements continually accumulate, reconstruct and transform, they attempt to challenge the concept of performing and perceiving in both stage design and choreography.
