"It was an empowering residency that helped us really engage with community on a grander scale." said by Mushi after residency in BCS. MUSHI is an artist-anthropologist concerned with the ‘we’. Working with other artists he believes what is most critical in any creation of an idea or work is the capacity to work together and jointly. Collaboration is his medium, developing a space that allows him to move beyond the differences in our inherited conditions.
Japanese artist/director Tadashi NOHARA conducted two workshops during his residency at BCS. Amateur actors from diverse backgrounds were instructed to interview and engage in intimate conversations with each other. These individuals learned about each other’s childhood memories and values, and were able to understand one another through in-depth interactions. Footages collected from the workshops are materials to NOHARA’s film, screening at the rough-cut preview at BCS on 02. 25. 2017. The film looks at the different ways men and women interpret mundane events in daily lives, and has no established script. Actors were provided with mere background descriptions of the roles he or she would be playing, and were advised to improvise freely. The artist hopes that, by connecting with the sense of the everyday in the film, the audience would be able to develop their own perspectives on life.
