WAYS OF SEEING
ACM Green. All day.
Ways of Seeing by Zarch Collaboratives invites visitors to peer in a giant telescope to view one's surroundings through new frames. In these unprecedented times of COVID-19, the telescope takes on an additional layer of meaning – aiding in the metaphorical viewing, observing, and savouring of experiences from afar.
WAYS OF SEEING: TELESCOPIC DREAMS
ACM Facebook. 7pm premiere.
Conceived by Faye Lim and Finbarr Fallon, this short dance film brings audiences closer, nearer and inner. The choreography of space and movement draws attention to how far we have been apart in 2020 and at the same time, how near we have become. Catch it on ACM’s Facebook, debuting on 22 January 2021.
