WORKSHOP:
WHAT WE TALK ABOUT WHEN WE TALK ABOUT OUR WORK
KOK HENG LEUN

What is your process of creating work? How do you make artistic decisions? How do you collaborate with other artists? Do you and how do you work with a dramaturg? In a careful examination of your own body of work, as well as hearing how others articulate theirs, you'll be able to extract a sort of work ethos and uncover a voice that is uniquely yours.

Come prepared to talk about past work that is important to you. Any documentation you have of these works will be helpful during the sharing.
