Portrait Projects: DANCE DANCE DANCE

2012 on going


Five young individuals who came from different cultural backgrounds, they have different skin colors and with different interests in daily lives and were brought up with different ideologies. There is one thing in common, they are all intoxicated when they start to dance, the vigorous dynamics that transmitted from their peculiar body movements are highly infective to the spectators - wherever in parties, on the streets or at a studio space.

These dancing unfold singular inner worlds that are on the fullness of search, desire, struggle and joy. One could see these personal dynamics as the evidence of an existential state of mind, which is profound and perhaps therefore it was rarely exposed.
