Performance Art Concept:
There are two main “searching” in my present situation, besides being aware of “spontaneity” which are most welcome in my actions.
The first searching is to find out my strength, especially in durational works. I mean the strength in which I can hold on in my purpose of such performance – to keep my mind focus, as well as to stay in time of durational.
Another new challenge for me is to keep “intimate” communication with the audience, by finding positive energy within the atmosphere of such gathering.
