JOGET, ABANG, JOGET
Dance, Darling, Dance
It begins with a breath. It ends in a dance.
Joget, Abang, Joget (Dance, Darling, Dance) is the further development of the solo performance Dancing with the Ghost of My Child, first performed in Singapore for R.I.T.E.S #5-2011 (Rooted in the Ephemeral Speak) in 2011 by Effendy. In this work, Effendy continues his on-going performance research to excavate inherent and latent memories within the body through abuse on the flesh, and to understand concepts of guilt and desire as he negotiates his faith and his constantly shifting identities in a society that he sees as seeking to neuter otherness. In Joget, Abang, Joget, Effendy seeks to reconcile ideas of tenderness in violence.
Joget, Abang, Joget is ready and available for international tour/travel.
