Artist Farm 2019
Artists at play – unexpected collisions combine to form units of infinite possibilities!
Every year, nine artists and three dramaturgs are invited for a unique creative boot camp, led by The Theatre Practice’s Artistic Director Kuo Jian Hong. Artist Farm is a safe haven for artists to work across disciplines, jam with little pressure, and most importantly play.
Engaging in training and skill exchange in the mornings, followed by creative sparring and work development in the afternoon and evenings, Artist Farm nurtures ideas and pushes the boundaries of collaborative practices. These artists must find common ground as the foundation of their collaboration – also known as “The Thesis Statement”. Through their artistic processes, we gain a unique insight into what it means to collaborate, experiment and play.
The journey concludes with a series of three public presentations. Audience members are invited to witness the evolution of works, and to dive deeper into the artistic process by engaging in critical open dialogue with our Farmers.
With just a week to toil, how do these artists find and articulate a unified, clear voice under such exquisite pressure?
