If We Were XYZ
Project Asia Society New York, U.S.A.
Date: 10.17, 2019

Artists: Melati SURYODARMO 麦拉蒂·苏若道默 | 

One of Asia’s most important contemporary artists, Melati Suryodarmo, has been creating powerful, immersive performance work for nearly twenty-five years. She premieres a durational performance, entitled IF WE WERE XYZ at Asia Society Museum. In this new work, she explores dreams—both in the sense of the subconscious experiences we have while sleeping and the conscious aspirations we have when awake. Drawing upon Javanese mysticism, the artist’s own dreams documented in a self-devised sleep laboratory, and other sources, Suryodarmo’s intensive research process leads to a visceral three-hour performance. IF WE WERE XYZ will feature a live journeying through a powerful dreamscape; Suryodarmo collaborated with technologist Antonius Oki Wiriadjaja to decipher dreams collected in her sleep laboratory which inspired the compositions vocalist/composer Jessika Kenney has created for the piece.
