The title Venn Bodies is inspired by the concept of Venn diagrams, commonly used to illustrate complex relationships between different sets. Building on the explanation of the German mathematician Georg Cantor, who described a set as ‘many considered as one’, in this performance, each individual body is regarded as a single set, seen as a vessel of cultural memory on the stage.

In Venn Bodies, artists with different interests and backgrounds exchange their works of art and interpret each other’s works from their own artistic perspectives, exploring the diverse relationships that emerge. The performance adopts a parkour style, allowing the audience to freely explore the space while multiple performances unfold simultaneously at various locations on the stage.
