Before B.O.B.* The Final Cut returns to Europe next summer, I have recently initiated a performance project titled Encounter Series. The concept is to get to know a person of a different culture within a limited period of time and then reflect the process in the context of a performance. Encounter #1 was recently presented in Bangkok with Thai performing artist Kuck, under the umbrella of Live Arts Bangkok. After the premiere, Encounter #1 will be subtitled 1+1≠2 and presented in Hong Kong in Jan 08 in a shared evening program. Details to follow.
