WHO WE ARE
It’s not about ticking boxes; it’s about putting the work first.
FK Co-Lab presents the urgent and immediate sociopolitical landscape through the lens of the personal, using praxis as a dramaturgical process that drives our collaborative artistic explorations and research enquiry. We engage with who we are in relationship with the historical, current, and found places we position ourselves in to access the forgotten and unheard individual and collective voices in society.
Through developing original performances and undertaking in practice as research, FK Co-Lab aims to push forward and evolve the ongoing dialogue between contemporary performance practices and the larger debates on and around the prevalent concerns of today.
