Fri, 11 Nov
6 – 7pm
Level 3, SAM at Tanjong Pagar Distripark
Free with registration | https://wayangspaceship-conversation.peatix.com
Join performance researcher Alvin Lim and media theorist Shaoling Ma as they respond to the futurism of Wong’s installation and reflect upon the ritualistic and science-fictional narratives embedded within it. The two speakers will engage in readings of the Wayang Spaceship that align with key insights from their research practice. From performance, theatre, and spiritual practices alongside screen technologies and speculative fiction, the conversation will expand on these intersections that lie within the Wayang Spaceship.
This session will be moderated by SAM curator Syaheedah Iskandar.
This programme is part of Wayang Spaceship, commissioned by The Everyday Museum with the support of Sun Venture. It is presented on the occasion of the launch of The Everyday Museum website, click here to find out more about the two days of programmes in store.

4. Pan-dance-mic: Dancing is not just getting up painlessly
By Irsyad Dawood with Rebecca Ashley Dass and Daisy Zhao
Sat, 12 Nov
Various timings from 3 – 6pm
Cargo Lift, Lobby B, next to SAM at Tanjong Pagar Distripark

As the pandemic took away previous opportunities for socialising in person, Pan-dance-mic aims to reinvigorate liminal spaces with spontaneous social dancing. Responding to the theme of bodies, cells, materiality and flesh, as well as the relationship between the virtual and physical, Pan-dance-mic resituates asynchronous dancing on social media in a physical space to encourage bodies to move and interact as a single organism again.
Upon encountering and learning several dance moves from a dance-operator (performer), audiences become participants of a self-contained social dancing event momentarily suspended in time and space, before being ushered back into reality.
