03 May 2017 - 03 May 2017  7.30pm - 9pm
FEE: free
Sublime Dreams of the Body Explorers is a collection of proposals on new perspectives for imagining our future through the body. Choy Ka Fai presents his ongoing research and explorations into how the body can remember and invent technological narratives. His project spans across the visual fields of choreographic processes, from the technicality of body conditioning to the cultural, social, and political aspects of dance. The lecture will also introduce the blueprint of Ember Jello, the first Artificial Intelligent Machine prototype for choreographic processes designed by the artist.

This lecture is part of the public programme of The Making of an Institution.
