"Fast-paced, exciting and fluid" --Dance Europe (on Wicked Fish)
Wicked Fish sees the dancers mimic a shoal of fish, as puzzle-like choreography competes with its complex score, while The Wall examines ideas of protection and segregation, highlighting the physical and mental barriers built around us. Cheng Tsung-lung's Beckoning focuses on how people can shift identities almost instantaneously, and creates a mysterious zigzag of body language with movements distilled subtly from Taiwanese street-dancing rituals that gives this abstract work a playful and poetic quality
Part of Out of Asia 2 season at the Sadler's Wells.
Out of Asia 2 features a range of works by five dance companies from across China and Taiwan, as well as four independent choreographers from China, Japan, Indonesia and India, in a special collaboration with artist Choy Ka Fai, originally from Singapore.
