Daniel Kok, awarded Young Artist of the National Arts Council of Singapore, returns to Hiroshima Hall on the 17th and 18th of February at 9.00pm with a performance investigating his relationship with the audience.
What would happen if when I say that I'm working on my audience was literal? What would happen if when I look at the audience from the stage, I could look at each one of you in the eye and recognise you? What would happen if we had created an intimate relationship while you came to see me in the theatre?
In 2012, Daniel received an MA of Solo/Dance/Author (SODA) at the Inter-University Centre for Dance (HZT, Berlin). In 2014, he finished his studies on Advanced Performance and Scenography (APASS) in Brussels. In 2008, he was given the award to the Young Artist of the National Arts Council of Singapore.
