3 fingers at arm’s Length
This is how we measure the sky.
Nominated for Outstanding Choreography – Hong Kong Dance Alliance 2018
In this work we measure ourselves through the arc of light and shadow. We step into our shadows only to escape them in our nostalgia for the light. Swallowing clouds we pass through the deliciousness of our desires, knowing we cannot have one without the other.
This work was created in collaboration with the performers along with original sound composition by Domenico Angarano. References include Fipsi Seilern, Yojhi Yamamoto, Isamu Noguchi, Ignatz, ESG, Flying Low, Passing Through and the Wan Chai Wet Market (Hong Kong).
