Work

Here It Goes Again

The performance reveals the ignorance of human being in the modern society, reminding the audience not to turn a blind eye to injustice as one could be the accomplice of the tragedy. Six performers act as the abuser, the victim and the bystanders; the work is divided into two halves of similar choreography with different arrangements. By allowing the audience as bystanders, the second half turns back the clock but makes an alternative decision. The different results are juxtaposed to let the audience reflect on seizing opportunities to rewrite stories in life for the betterment of themselves and others.

Nominated for the Hong Kong Dance Awards 2015, this piece was first performed in 2010 and toured to different cities in Asia.
