Secret Journey: 40th Anniversary of
Yoshiko Chuma and The School of Hard Knocks 2020-2023
Nobody knows the true story yet…
This week features Agnė Auželytė. Agnė and Yoshiko met in 2014, in rural Germany, in Stolzenhagen. Driven by curiosity, intuitive understanding and burning desire to connect the dots across time and borders, reoccurring memories, archives and fiction, they continue their conversation till this day.
SML: Zooma - Dead End is the latest chapter of Dead End, The School of Hard Knocks (2020-2023) an ongoing multi-disciplinary performance series conceived, created and performed by The School of Hard Knocks. Assembling a mosaic of films, dance, music, visual art, and narratives, SML investigates ideas of national security, perceived dangers within borders, immigration, and war. Now, in the face of the ongoing pandemic, SML turns to the ephemeral spaces online to forge connections between locations. Using the ubiquitous tools of social conferencing, Zooma: Dead End will enable artists to explore their ideas and communicate to diverse artists and members of the community.
SML: Zooma - Dead End has a regular cast of performers along with hosts, special guests, and artists who are scattered across the world. Musicians, dancers and designers interact, albeit indirectly, as nineteen chapters cross over each other. Parallel incidents of sound, text, and action connecting the cities of New York, Ankara, Madaba, Tokyo, Caracas, Tehran, Hong Kong, Berlin, Los Angeles, Brussels, Kabul, Palestine, and Dakar.
