Work

Bipolar Bodies

Two bodies revolve around a hanging aerial pole that responds to images and sound, extending into multiple layers of movement and philosophical statements inspired by Chinese Taoism.

The veteran dancer-choreographer Daniel Yeung collaborates with classically trained dancer Chen Jun, Principal Dancer of Hong Kong Dance Company, and new media artist Keith Lam in creating this multimedia Chinese dance. Between sound, light and dance, this innovative work is a contemporary Chinese dance experiment that transcends spatial and physical boundaries.
