The End of Innocence

“Dance till the world ends, to the darkness.”

This dance performance is inspired by Ang Lee’s movie Lust, Caution which was based on the novella of the same name by Chinese author Eileen Chang. It also features the haunting music from the movie, composed by Alexandre Desplat. The film score won the Best Original Film Score award in the 44th Golden Horse Awards.
