OUR WORK

REPERTORY

Dismell

Dismell, a made-up word by a 20th-century psychologist Silvan Tomkins, is a work inspired by the 9/11 stories with the focus on a biological reaction when encountering the obnoxious smells that occurred in the event of 9/11.
 

Immured

Immured investigates a space that seems to contain freedom, but the space is sealed within enclosed space with no exits.
 

Do You Hear Me?

Inspired by Beethoven's struggle after he became completely deaf.  Feeling sound from vibrations and metronomes.  
     

A World In-Between

A World In-Between interlaces between the physical world and the virtual world which is a creative exploration of the application of Japanese animation techniques of Anime to contemporary dance and sound art.
  
 

Eclosion

Abstractly interpreted about eclosion (metamorphosis in French), meaning the life stage of some insects undergoing transformation. Hands are the symbols of freedom, growth, and transformation. Movements without hands metaphors something incomplete, restricted or something in process to become complete. How they (or we) struggle to transform. Discoveries, challenges during the transformation. 
 

You are not yours

"You are Not Yours" explores the hypothetical space where the dancers become the marionette, imaginary strings connected to the dancer's head, back and other possible body parts manipulating the dancer's body.  It is the movement based exploration that stimulates the audience's mind by abstractly unraveling the contradiction of the reality of hierarchical society.  Performers embody 'hand gestures' as a metaphor of manipulation, control, and domination. 
 
 

No more mendacity

Reflecting on the physical and emotional states of being truthful to yourself. The work concentrates on discovering honesty and rawness of being truthful. No more rounding, avoiding, and hiding.  
 

Jeanne: the story of a woman

An excerpt derived from JEANNE, a full-length opera by James Swindell and Mark Warhol. JEANNE, the story of a woman promises to not only intrigue the audience on its own merits, but also to leave them with a craving to view the completed work. At the moment, that opportunity is still a best kept secret.  

Detail of the Patterns

Choreography conveys repetitions and patterns dancers leave traces as they play with time, space, movement qualities, sound, and focus.  As a result, choreography become more intertwined.  Dancers become "materials" and they brush and draw 3 dimensionally with oral and musical soundscape.
