Pop-up is a flash word, with a sense of temporary, flash, and instant speed, and also corresponds to the pop art of the 1950s. Through the development of media communication methods, “speed” has become the key to absorbing the unknown, which coincides with the popular culture mocked by Pop Art: copying, pasting, mass production. Under the scouring of headline parties and short videos, people’s patience is constantly appeased by extremely short essays and short videos in less than a few minutes. This simultaneously challenges what do people truly want.
Awareness of body, awareness of joy, awareness of happiness, Peace of mind
Music, singing bowl, tea drinking, autumn moon, all as one
Loading Night, Invites participants to experience the joy of life
Tea man, violinists, and players of natural instruments collaborate, resetting self-awareness in this turbulent time.
The content of the performance uses sound, tea art, meditation, and poetry singing to keep the audiences waiting in a quiet and dimmed space. While roaming in it, restlessness, rest, and enjoyment of music will all be infused into the event. Through the guidance of music, the sensing of silent waiting will be transformed into a symbol of solitary time, feeling one’s self in the age of post-epidemic and rampant information.
