Kala

Kala is a performance of small space with the term itself being a Chinese vernacular describing narrow spaces or wall corners. It describes the desire towards the wide expanse of sky and the sun while remaining at a cramped wall corner. For the detainee confined in the space, the inner struggle and weeping may be the catalyst to getting out of the status quo. When hope is gone, he allows himself to be blinded and be oblivious to the world outside.

The dance piece alludes to the numerous high-rise buildings in Hong Kong. For people living in this “concrete jungle” constantly striving for survival, even a trace of sunlight penetrating the skyscrapers will be impetus for people to fly high.
