Fragments of the ocean

FRAGMENTS OF THE OCEAN IS PERFORMANCE MADE TO URBAN WATERY LANDSCAPES. It takes THE PUBLIC to A SOMATIC SENsuous JOURNEY INTO our wet lands and diving in the dry lands and wading through marine life in shallow waters of urban city. The journey starts from the surface and dives into the depth. From light to dark and warmth to cold. The piece brings the diversity of the marine life and human centric experience on the ocean from embodying marine life, voicing with whales into mourning with the ocean and all kinds who got lost in the ocean.

"Invertebrates, gelatine textures, predators, hydrothermal vents, noise pollution, melting glaciers, plastic bags, sinking, undulating, bonding, squirting, holding the breath, hallucinating, weeping with whales, free falling from the surface into depths, floating the past 500 million years, voices which are lost in the depths of the sea.  in the fragments of the ocean. ....MORE PEOPLE HAVE WALKED IN THE MOON THAN IN OUR DEEPEST OCEAN.
