“Teik-Kim Pok’s Karaoke Massage is what it says on the label. And that is one excellent label.” – Rachel Chant, Festival Director
Feeling stiff? In need of a song? Karaoke Massage is the (free) ticket for you. Combining the practices of lullaby and touch, this performative exchange is a massage choreographed to your chosen pop hit, under the gaze of the public.
An outdoor festival favourite for nearly two decades, Karaoke Massage is an interactive performance experience that experiments with fusing familiar activites that promote a feeling of wellness – public singing and healing touch. Select your favourite pop song and experience a finely choreographed massage (of varying intensity according to song, obviously), all in view of a curious public.
