A museum is generally known as a structure, building or institution that exhibits objects of historical, scientific, cultural or artistic value. In this site-specific performance “Body as Object,” Indonesian choreographer, Eko Supriyanto employs the architectural backdrop of ArtScience Museum’s rain oculus to play and display the statue-like bodies of his three male dancers from Solo Dance Studio. Individually adorned with Bornean-inspired traditional tattoos, each dancer reveals a collection of narratives about crossing of traditional and contemporary cultures over this one-hour choreographic exhibition.

 Renowned for their extensive vocabulary of contemporary dance techniques rooted in classical Javanese tradition, this transformative imagery of bodies as objects – the dancers – articulate an alternative exhibition format to the audiences of ArtScience Late as they move along the core of the museum’s structure where metal, water & air all meet.

Entry is complimentary and on a first come first served basis. ArtScience Museum will be opened until 10pm for every ArtScience Late event.

You’ll feel your heart thumping but you’ll never get to see it. From an internal to an external instrument- the body to the gadgets allow others to see how Fuyuki Yamakawa’s heart is beating. Visualised through the use of light bulbs connected to the stethoscope attached on his chest, Yamakawa employs the full faculties of his body and voice to bring to life a performance concert installation.

This is a performance new media concert that will combine throat singing, guitar, percussion and heartbeat projection. 

Entry is complimentary and on a first come first served basis. ArtScience Museum will be opened until 10pm for every ArtScience Late event.
