INSTINC SOHO presents Good Good Fortune, showcasing performance installation by INSTINC AIR Lucy Marinkovich (New Zealand).
Good Good Fortune is a live performance installation that engages the audience in a reflection upon the role of fortune in our lives, and considers our accountability in creating our own experiences and circumstances.
The performance process advocates both conscientious decision-making and intuitive reaction. Audience members are individually led through a series of game play, chance and instinctive response to ultimately lead them to the selection of their personal fortune.
The contentious duality of fate and free-will is at the core of this fortune cookie performance experiment that questions, like Sophocles’ Oedipus, if your fate is predetermined and inescapable, or whether autonomy and indeterminism allow you to choose your own fortune?
The artist was inspired to make this work upon a recent rereading of Sophocle’s ‘Oedipus Rex’ and the impossible binary of fate and free will that the play’s tragic hero was subject to, but also upon reflection of her own circumstances and the ways in which she considers herself to be fortunate. “I am so grateful and appreciative of the opportunity to come to Singapore to create and perform this new work” says Marinkovich. “Though I don’t consider that it is because of luck that I am here, I do feel extremely fortunate and this consciousness became the point of departure when I began devising the work Good Good Fortune”.
