Pandemic and Performance

For this project Kantanka invited a number of artists to develop a performance for a Virtual Reality film, responding to the societal impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In collaboration with KANTANKA each artist has created a short work that responds to COVID-19, its origins, its impact on human behaviour and the environment, and the future possibilities for a world post-pandemic. What thoughts and questions emerged during this period of forced isolation? What did you make of “suspended time” during the lockdown, the sense of crisis as the pandemic emerged? What is your desire for a new future post-pandemic?
