Beijing Dance Festival 2019 Springboard

By Kevin Polak


The second night started with Wayson Poon’s ‘Vortex’ an honest reflection of a personal story, where Wayson is not afraid to share his inner life. The construction is clean and consistent from the start to the end. Already the very slow fading of the audience lights sets the atmosphere and is a genius touch of how light should support a choreography. Wayson shows us his inner demons of choosing his life style against following tradition and family, his struggles and reasoning’s to eventually chose his life.

Very well executed and consistent, here Wayson shows us he is a mature Choreographer that has outgrown the Springboard program. Bravo
