Kaori Nishio, June 15, 2016
As a spectactor, can you tell (and should you?) which country a performance comes from? In what way should an artist consider his origin when deciding what audience to aim at?
Japanese artist Kaori Nishio – one of our Festival Grant Awardees – touches those points in her review of Toshiki Okada's performance "God Bless Baseball".
Ren Xin Lee, June 13, 2016
"Extreme Voices" by Miss Revolutionary Idol Berserker has been one of the most controversially discussed performances of the opening weekend of the festival, also among the Festival Grant Awardees.
Responding to Richard Antrobus' review, Malayan artist Ren Xin Lee is strongly objecting against his reading of the performance in her text.
What is your view on it?
