Fall of A Sudden

A collaboration between Allen Lam, and musicians PC Muñoz and Kyle Bruckmann from San Francisco, Fall of A Sudden offers a surreal dance experience comprising motion, stillness and the cycle of life.

Fall of A Sudden depicts dancers getting lost in the sea. Water floods the body from all directions. The dancers feel suffocated and are dragged backwards. The sea that they love is suddenly a source of terror. They struggle madly, but the more they struggle, the more disoriented they become.

Yet the body starts to become one with the stormy water. The dancers float and flow with the rhythm. They hear music coming from within their souls! So they let go: the music calms them, and the movements of their bodies make them conscious and alive. Between motion and stillness is the cycle of life. Fall of A Sudden tugs at your subconscious and invites it to join the flow!
