What is body? Are we actually in existence? Do we actually accept all that reside within our body, including dreams, delicate sensations, our self-retrospection, and even our mutual communication? Are we actually aware of our existence?
Existentialism with its ideologies on humans has truly awakened suppressed emotions in the body of Mine, Yours, and Ours; we have reached this world, after “nine months of silently modling ourselves into question marks.” So then, in each moment, each breath, and each endless movement, we continue the quest for the ‘why’ behind this union.
With the dance piece X-PROJECT, all of our searching, in the end is to touch upon the essence of reality. Within this fair, humans are moving across sensitive bodies; reality is subtily reclaiming its rightful place. Who knows what tomorrow will bring…
MORUA ARTS PROJECT (MAP) is an independent, non-profit project founded by artist, choreographer Ngo Thanh Phuong in January 2020. The first explosion of this art project is MUARUA – an artist-in-residence program focusing on performing/performance art in Hoi An, Vietnam. MORUA means “somewhere”, a symbol for the space-in-between, the space of experiments and process. MORUA ARTS PROJECT doesn’t want to focus on the final works. Instead, we eager to create a focused space and time for art practitioners to develop new works. MORUA is a moveable playground for choreographer/ performance and performing artists to develop their interdisciplinary works as well as to share their own method of body and movement.
MORUA would love to say thanks to Drawer, CAB Hoian for their generous support in terms of venue and organization. Lovely thanks to Nổ Cái Bùm for having us as a “Heart Explosion” in your wonderful Art-week.
