X-Box

This performance was inspired by a malay proverb ‘ macam katak di bawah tempurung’ which means that a frog who is comfortable living in its own coconut shell´. Due to unknown reasons, the frog is afraid to go out and experience the world around him perhaps because of its own fear to try something new.
In this performance Amir decided to imitate the frogs way of life where he stayed in a box with the size about 6 x 3 sqm for 3 days without leaving. he abstained from food during the whole performance but drank mineral water. Instead of totally locking himself in like the frog he received daily supply of local newspapers, a computer with 24 hours access to the internet and opened the door of the space inviting people to come into the box for a conversation.
