Flickers of Light in Dark Times is a live motion capture dance performance about getting crushed by the adversity of urban life, and regaining strength by accepting kindness and support.
The piece plays with notions of the visible and invisible structures that surrounds us in urban life. The fully motion tracked dancer navigates the spaces in between the audiences, vexing from completely ignoring them, and acknowledging their presence as a source of strength. The audience takes an active role as they offer her support through motion tracked wisps that rattle and sprout lights in the darkness.
Flickers of Light in Dark Times creates an immersive live experience through movement, projection of interactive 3D graphics and 4-channel audio.
In collaboration with Nancy Chiu, Chester Ma
and Man-Ping Wu.
