Work

Heaven Behind the Door

Created in 2014, Heaven Behind the Door was originally a 30-minute piece combining text and light projection to create a poetic world. The social unrest in Hong Kong in the past few years has ignited the thoughts: How much power does one person have? Some people are destined to change the world; they boldly walk the line in the forefront of things, affecting other lives with their own, leaving us to sing their praises. That raises the question: What about everyone else? What can a nobody like this dancer do to make the world a better place?

Wong believes that everyone is unique and it is just the society that educates us to think otherwise. If everyone can preserve their own sanctuary, their power can be tremendous! This sanctuary can be a belief, a place, a lifestyle, a principle to hold fast to, a one-and-only… A precious sanctuary that will never be breached no matter what. But people can be as weak as they can be strong. Where does the strength to stand your ground come from?
