【About the program】
Home states a common theme that human being shares. In the perspective of several dancers, this well-timed piece reveals philosophy about life. The interaction performance by the dancers from China and France in different backgrounds and live music musicians also with amazing installations on stage will create a completely new journey for audiences. Listening to stories about lives and resonating inside, you never feel lonely on the way Home.
We walk this desolate earth and search along with all the rest,
Memory, restraint, sincerity, belonging,
The past existing within our bodies is the proof of present living,
Break, remodel, strike, revive,
We walk back and forth between light and shade, unkown whether it is dusk or dawn
But a direction called “home” is pulling from the beginning to the end
By Zeng Ying
