雙重刺點 DOUBLE PUNCTUM
[ Photography 攝影 | Dance 舞蹈 | Theatre 劇場 ］
Punctum arises from each PHOTO.
Punctum exists in each MOMENT OF TIME.
In each BODY, punctum appears in movements.
When creativities encounter each other, when punctum overlap, There is a possibility of double expose of illusion in every view of life.
Roland Barthes once said: “A photography’s punctum is that accident detail which pricks one’s feeling”. It triggers emotion of the viewer, stirring the sweetness and bitterness of memories”. Where photography encounters performing arts, which is the meeting of punctum to punctum, what will then arise from the clashing of the two punctums?
Double Punctum is the encounter of photography, dance and theatre.
Pam Lim and William Mok both love photography. One is a professional interior designer while one has a mechanical engineering background. Both are never professional photographer but contribute a lot of time and patience into photography. They explore the second layer of life with photography. Last year, they went together with a group of photography lovers to a magnificent trip to Xiapu, one of the most beautiful shores in Fujian Province. Along with heavy photography equipment, they look at the breathtaking scenery quietly, peasants working on the shore, bamboo sticks, fishing boats, all these form a magnificent and poetic view. In the beginning when looking down at the shore, it seems like there are nothing special. However when they looked at the photos after returning home, they realized that the distant shoreline forms different dramatic view. That trip was to find details beauty from a magnificent and gigantic scene.
Early winter last year, together with theatre director Loh Kok Man and choreographer Ming Low, they went to the legendary Jiuzhaigou Valley. They purposely chose not to depart during the colorful summer, but snowing winter. This time, they didn’t look from distant, but getting near to the sceneries. Trembling flowers, sound of wind passing by the lake, minute changes of snow drops on the earth, they waited patiently for a long time in exchange of great photographic works.
Upon their return to Malaysia, they decided to utilize the photos taken as elements to create a performance. The performance integrates photography and body. Photography signifies time as body is an extension of performing arts, when the two meets, magic will then be created.
This is a multidisciplinary performance integrating photography, dance, music and theatre. Theatre director Loh Kok Man turns the photographic works into theatrical magic. Together with experimental music created by local composer Ng Chor Guan, choreographer Ming Low and Wong Jyh Shyong created new languages on stage, creating a performance where the east and the west meet, a performance that is contemporary but classical, strong but tender, quiet but agitating.
Double Punctum departs from photography but travel deep into the realm of time and life. Audiences will walk out the theatre thinking about punctum and magic in their respective life.
