From Goethe Institut:

“Natural Habitat” (“Sinh cảnh”) is an audio-visual performance jointly envisioned and delivered by Nhung Nguyen (well-known as Sound Awakener), and the four-member electronic group Ngầm – in cooperation with Bread n’ tea.

“Natural Habitat” was conceived in the context of the ongoing pandemic and social isolation, which have changed the previous methods and practices of artistic work by musicians. At the same time, alternative forms of expression have emerged that react to the transformations of urban life and fit the requirements of social distancing.The performance reflects literal physical isolation, involuntary emotional alienation, and the risks and insecurities of the unknown. It wants to make the audience reflect think and it demonstrates how art can survive and assert itself despite existing challenges.
