As part of Lonely Vectors, P7:1SMA are presenting a work titled Loading/Unloading, which responds to the exhibition’s proximity to the Tanjong Pagar port. To embody the movement and rhythms of the port’s megastructures, P7:1SMA’s associates will disassemble and reassemble their structural installation in the gallery. By balancing on, stepping over or moving these modular structures, the structure will gradually flatten and lose elasticity over the course of the exhibition. Each performance is an integral facet of Loading/Unloading and calls for recognition of the workers that prop up the port’s complex systems.
P7:1SMA is a dance performance company that endeavours to shift perspectives on Malay cultural identity through intimate and innovative performance experiences.
Venue: SAM at Tanjong Pagar Distripark
