Coronet Inside Out: Andy Chia
For Coronet Inside Out, Artistic Director, Artist/Musician, Producer, and Composer Andy Chia shares Kali Yuga, part of SAtheCollective’s series ETHNI-CITY.
Kali Yuga is the latest instalment of ETHNI-CITY, premiered in October 2018. Its name is inspired by Sanskrit scripture and the Mahabharata. Our interdisciplinary work is designed with the hope of raising awareness to the pervasive powers that corrupt, control, and detach human beings from one another and Mother Nature. To counter that, we believe that by channeling energy to people, and by using technology in our art-making, that people will be able to rediscover their autonomy, the first of a butterfly effect that would ultimately allow Man, Nature and Technology to coexist with one another.
SAtheCollective presents their latest offering as part of their ETHNI-CITY series. At its essence, the project aims to celebrate the meeting of diverse cultures. While Singapore’s diverse setting has given its people a basic understanding and tolerance for other races, our belief is that all our cultures can attain to an even greater state of congruence. By using the universal language of music, ETHNI-CITY is at once both a reflection of the current state of Singapore society, as well as a hopeful depiction of a brighter future.
