Event description
In our world, now drowning in noise, silence becomes resistance, persistence.

About this Event

A tree falls in the middle of the forest, surrounded by an orchestra: tuba, cello and all. The musicians sit unmoving, for exactly 4 minutes and 33 seconds: does anybody hear?

Silence is golden, but gold can be so loud. Here’s some silence for you: a caesura, a rest drawn on a crumpled sheet of music, the emptied spaces between words, the click click click of spacebar, the plastic push of the mute button on a remote control.

The impulse to create perhaps begins in a tunnel of silence; in our world, now drowning in noise, silence becomes resistance, persistence. It is only fitting that in the world’s quietest room, you can still hear your very own heartbeat.

NIDA and LIMINAL present ‘Silent Treatment’, an exploration of silence, featuring Yeo, flower boy 卓颖贤, Tracey Chen, Adolfo Aranjuez, Jamie Marina Lau, Darlene Silva Soberano, Panda Wong, and more.
