Work

When Time Limps

Three innovative dancers including Wong presents a dance piece inspired by Dali, the prominent Spanish surrealist painter. This dance piece is especially named after Dali’s most famous and recognisable work, “The Persistence of Memory”. The performance seeks relationship between space and time, defines dream and reality, and symbolises consciousness and unconsciousness. Through body movement and music, this performance brings an exciting sensory experience: Her/ His appearance violated (intruded upon?) my solitude, and destroyed it.

Layer by layer, the paintings and diary of the Surrealist, Salvador Dali, are unveiled until the unfolding of his narcissism. The sharpness of body movements melts gradually. With the original music, surreal scenes of “relationship and love” are brought into the reality.
