【About the program】

The piece brings peaceful memories or lonely whispers, fragmented and feeble, tranquil and relieving; taking audience to go from watching to submerging in the dance.

“To see, is to prepare oneself to enter into an unknown area. One has to be willing to thrown away all existing beliefs, knowledge, traditions, and everything that we have become comfortable with. We just need to open up and allow ourselves to be in a receiving mode, going back to a quintessential state of mind and heart without any pre-judgements nor assumptions. This heart will then through look discover new things, and not to confirm on things.” —— The Zen Teachings of Jesus by Kenneth S. Leong.
