This project by Lewys Holt relates to karaoke. Karaoke as a way of weaving together music, poetry and dance.
“We’re not yet sure of anything yet but my understanding of the idea at the moment is that it has something to do with the form of a karaoke night. There is something to do with the format of taking turns to be the centre of attention whilst others take a backseat and/or watch that interests me.”
Other key questions relate to an individual’s reasons for wanting to sing, karaoke in relations to notions of class (high and low art) and also something about time…highlighting moments in time, fleetingness, the fact that the karaoke singers time is limited, how this could be a metaphor that the time that earth spends as an inhabitable planet. How can you extend your moment?
