WeiZen Ho's The Subtle Beings is a performance installation that is the result of her two years of travel in Asia to research and witness of rituals in Sabah (East Malaysia) and Hanoi, rituals that are connected to her own cultural heritage. 

The work uses hair, text, sound, text, sound circuitry, movement, vocals and video.

Her collaboraters are Katja Handt (costume designer), Iqbal Barkat (film artist), Vincent Tay (cinematographer), Binh Ta (cultural artist-guide in Hanoi), Damian Castaldi (sound circuitry, kinetic sound-to-body designer), Michael Touisuta (sound design collaborater + engineer).  The installation team includes volunteers Sarah Keighery, Bill Seeto, Louise Morgan, Alexandra Mitchell and Naomi Ullmann.

This project has been made possible by Australia Council's Arts Project grant for WeiZen to study and develop Performances, Interpreted & Reimagined of Asian Animistic & Shamanistic Rituals (2016-2018)
