Unassuming Voices


2015
multidisciplinary arts collaboration

Unassuming Voices is a mixed media painting series done live as part of a collaborative multidisciplinary arts performance of the same name. This arts production held at Drama Centre Black Box, Singapore involves local dance group PARAGRAPH, pianist/composer Aditya Permana and visual artist Jaxton Su. The paintings were all auctioned out as part of the show.
