Weekly Scratch

Five Scratches in Five City Spaces

#2018 #public space #collective

The “Weekly Scratch” series is an artistic challenge launched by _ao_ao_ing at the end of 2018: to openly call for artists to create five draft performances in different public spaces in the city, each made from scratch within six days. The challenge lasted for five consecutive weeks and happened in five different locations. In every Wednesday evenings, the audience witnessed a live performance and join the creative panel afterwards with the artists.

"Weekly Scratch" is not only the first time that _ao_ao_ing started experimentation in the form of collective creation, but also planted the seed of making embedded site-specific performances. With intimacy, audience participation and multi-media performance, we invited the audience to join us on a journey to reflect on our daily life.

Through this intense process, _ao_ao_ing formed its shape with five members and continued to work as a group.
