Jenny Ocampo // Eric Wong
After The Canvas, choreographer Jenny Ocampo and musician Eric Wong come together to deepen their research on time and silence, extending them into sound and movement. "S" is a space to be filled out, a naught and silence where everything can emerge from and contrast to. Bodies and sound manifest their presence and absence; existence and death of every emotion become an infinite space of memories.
Jenny Ocampo is Colombian choreographer and dancer based in Berlin. She studied dance at the Folkwang University of arts in Essen. Currently, she finishes her M.A in Dance studies at the FU Berlin. In her recent project in choreography, Expanded being, the body acts as a vulnerable filter in our relationship with the otherness. Her method intertwines perception of inner and outer worlds into dance.
Eric Wong - Born 1981 in Minneapolis, MN, grew up in Hong Kong, studied Psychology at the University of Minnesota, a guitarist and computer musician. Although he has taken some lessons at younger age, he is pretty much an autodidact. His main focuses are sound textures and perception of sound. Currently based Berlin, he has performed in Germany, Austria, Belgium, Hong Kong, Macau, USA, Taiwan, China, Poland, Switzerland, Czech Republic, and Norway. In 2016 he co-curated and performed in UNSTUMM HONG KONG, a cross media improvisation performance with musicians and visual artists from Germany and Hong Kong.
