British Council Grant 2021: “Resilience, Distance, Connection in Isolation, Space from Afar”

“Resilience, Distance, Connection in Isolation, Space from Afar”

The pandemic has led us to reconsider the future of art and procedures of artistic creation. The pursuit of resilience through online networking, now and in an increasingly digital future, will create the durability that we need to broaden not only the possibilities of technology and the arts but also the development of cultures and communities in Southeast Asia and the UK.

This project is leading by two main artists between United Kingdom and Thailand, Dr. Scott Wilson and Piyawat Louilarpprasert with support by the British Council Grant 2021: UK-Southeast Asia Connections Through Culture. The project aims to exchange local and mutual knowledge of music with the theme: “Resilience, Distance, Connection in Isolation, Space from Afar”. With the missing presence of artistic creativities during the pandemic situation, we will build on existing relationships, and introduce younger artists to this network of connections.

March 2 – 4, 2021, 7-9PM and 11PM - 1AM (GMT+7)

6 performances: virtual concerts, lockdown performances, digital recording archives and the telematic improvisation.

featured artists: Annie Mahtani, Nikki Sheth, Jean-David Caillouët, Heather Roche, Anothai Nitibhon, Simon Barry Smith, Thanakarn Schofield, Pongthorn Techaboonakho and the Tacet(i) Ensemble.
