Individual Dance Items

Item #1

  • Title:Winged Wolves and The Bamboo Mew
  • Item Synopsis / Program Notes:

    Winged Wolves and the Bamboo Mew initiates its creative process by using Frühlings Erwachen (Spring Awakening) as a catalyst. It depicts the struggles of a group of pubertal adolescents trying to come to terms with their burgeoning sexual desires. The tragedy of adolescents lies in the fact that they are left alone with their questions, doubts, longings, feelings of guilt by their parents and teachers, which results in fatal consequences in some cases. It attacks the disciplinarian and prudish society of his day; a society that does considerable harm, with its attempt to cover up and suppress sexual desires.

Item #2

  • Title:P.o3M
  • Item Synopsis / Program Notes:

    Pieces of Three Movements is a work combining dance and multimedia art. Exploring the state of vision, detailing what is visible and visualized. The psychedelic visual projection, as if in a kaleidoscope, leads you to beautiful dream fest. It draws the poetry of the screen and lets you wonder whether the screen is dancing or the dancer is dancing on the screen.

Item #3

  • Title:Rite (Reimagined)
  • Item Synopsis / Program Notes:

    Originally with 7 male dancers, Rite is a piece created to challenge the idea of masculinity. The piece will be framed within the concept of ‘rite of passage’ – rituals that boys perform or undergo before they are deemed men. Within such rituals, there are three phases – The Preparation, The Ritual, The Celebration.
