A collaborative project for the Emerging Cultural Leaders Program at Footscray Community Arts Centre, June to October 2019
Losing One/Self Through Meditative Poetry is a performance of words and sound through the practice of meditation. The project interrogates grief by looking at the notion of loss. It examines how one is connected and isolated to feelings of loss during meditation; a practice that is usually associated with religious, Buddhist, or psychological processes of mindfully breathing and concentrating within the present moment. In response to Sasha Leong’s installation, Dan Wei’s performance piece and Thao Ly’s musical composition, this short piece reimagines poetry and performance as an act of meditation and letting go.
