It is said that fear is the strongest emotion. Perhaps this is its only universal characteristic....
E.K.K.O spent the month of august 2006 in the Czech Republic in the city of Tábor, to participate in the 11th Arts Festival of International Interdisciplinary Collaborations at CESTA. Together with 30 other artists from all over the world we spent the month working around the theme - Sense of Fear.
The organizers of the festival had pre-grouped us with multimedia artist Lucy HG (US) based in Los Angeles and installation artist Angela Chong from Singapore – together we created the piece:
"Shallow of breath – racing in the mind.
An interactive and immersive dance installation with integrated video and text.
Idea, concept and performance: Angela Chong (Singapore), Lucy H. G. (United States), Klara Elenius (Sweden) and Karina Dichov Lund (Denmark) of E.K.K.O
With Creative input: Emma Nordanfors (Sweden) of E.K.K.O
Video performance: Cat Jones (Australia)
English voice over: George Cremaschi
