Transmissions from the Wayang Spaceship: Shaoling Ma and Alvin Lim in Conversation with Syaheedah Iskandar

On 11 November 2022, performance researcher Alvin Lim and media theorist Shaoling Ma responded to the futurism of Wayang Spaceship by Ming Wong and reflected upon the ritualistic and science-fictional narratives embedded within it. The two speakers engaged 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 expanded on these intersections that lie within the Wayang Spaceship.

The programme was moderated by SAM curator Syaheedah Iskandar. Wayang Spaceship is commissioned by The Everyday Museum with the support of Sun Venture.
