Work

Here It Goes Again

Here It Goes Again is a dance theatre performance that illuminates how one person’s fate could be changed by a bystander’s decision on the spur of the moment. This work employs strong visuals in depicting moral dilemmas, reminding the audiences not to turn a blind eye to injustice but to take action; however small their act may be, it can make a difference.

In the work, six performers act as the abuser, the victim and the bystanders; the work is divided into two parts of similar choreography with different arrangements. By allowing the audience to witness as bystanders of an incident, the second part turns back the clock but arrives at an alternative decision. The different results are juxtaposed to let the audience reflect upon the need to seize the opportunities to rewrite stories in life, for the betterment of themselves and others.
