This year’s Borak Arts Series, which is set to take place in George Town, Penang, will feature exclusive content from The Performing Arts Meeting in Yokohama 2015 (TPAM). A series of interviews on video with Southeast Asian artists will be showcased at the regional arts conference this year.
Originally shown in the Yokohama Creativecity Centre earlier in February, the project aims to answer several important questions to do with the performing arts. The artists interviewed as part of the project include Indonesian, Malaysian and Singaporean creatives.
“We’ve managed to secure this exhibition as part of Borak Arts Series 2015, but delegates will also be able to view research and documentation done as part the interview,” explains Izan Satrina, co-founder of My Performing Arts Agency (MyPAA).
Two Malaysians were interviewed by TPAM for the project, namely director/researcher Mark Teh and dancer/choreographer Nadhirah Razid. Both were interviewed by Japanese artists Yuya Tsukahara and Yoshiro Hatori.
