The Snow

Fall was over and Winter came…

In the silent of the night, the spirits of snow are flying in the dark blue sky, appearing to tell the tales of how short and splendid their lives are.

In 2009, Yu won the Grand Prix at the 2009 New Prague Dance Festival Competition for The Snow and Thousand Lives.
