About the story
“How to be Shameless” is an interdisciplinary solo performance with a contemporary approach. It is created by 6 artists with different practices: multimedia, sound, language and movement…etc.
The work is a continuation of the piece created by: Cheung Yan, Huang Pin-yuan,Hsieh Chu-hsun for TTTIFA 2021 Solo contest. Matt, Guo Xuan,Yang Hsiu-han joined after for further development.
The group aspires to create imageries reflecting our time through intertwining mediums and exploring ways they can vibe with each other.
In a time of heightened individualism, low latency and zero time difference had become the new norm. It possesses more capital value than train tickets during holiday seasons. Individuals are being tagged and put into boxes.
Self love, self compassion, self therapy, namaste, and ཨོཾ་མ་ཎི་པ་དྨེ་ཧཱུྃ. We are the most beautiful, we replace death and climax with “shame”. We are inviting individuals that had been deindividualized for the sake of assimilation to aboard the train called Sunset which represents the apocalypse of an era or life itself.
This is a story about taking a train going right to Shame when the sun is about to set.
Ladies and gentlemen, Welcome on board.
We are uncertain about the arrival time. And if you are not happy with this carriage, do help yourself to the next one. There has got to be a perfect one for you. Don’t give up.
