Intersection
Premiere at the 19th Hong Kong Dance Awards
4 minutes and 30 seconds

Inspired by the interweaving fine, straight lines and geometrical space created in the paintings of Liu Wentao, a renowned contemporary Chinese visual artist and painter. Choreographer intends to explore the concept of dots-lines-planes through dancers bodies, movement and their connections with each other and the space from Chinese philosophical point of view. In Intersection, the ceaseless interchanging between light, space, stillness and motion demonstrates a combined dialectical relationship between nothing/absence and something/presence”, thus reflecting the emotional and physical distance between two individuals in a calm and peaceful state of mind.
