Most of the participants are strangers to me. I met Kaffee Matthews and Tadasu Takamine at FCP 2007 and of course I know the Vertical Submarine folks, Joshua Yang and Fiona Koh, from Singapore exhibitions. Oh, and I've watched Wu Wenguang's Memory II: Hunger when he presented it in Singapore in 2011. But otherwise, there are many new friends to be made.
The most important new friend, of course, is Theatre of the Disturbed, which is TheatreWorks's Myanmese/Burmese partner in this project. More about them later.
For those of you who want to know more about our participants and our programme, I direct you to the FCP's parallel website: http://flyingcircusproject2013.wordpress.com. That, if I understand correctly, is going to be run as an official, apparently objective blog. This site is where I get to be subjective, interpretive, subversive even.
Now, best to get some sleep. Toodle-pip, my pretties.
