Shuffle

Choreographer  Enoch Cheng

Dancer        Scarlet Yu

 

Shuffle activates changes.

A gesture triggers a response. A chain reaction follows a circular path.

Rhythm enables serendipity. Desire develops an algotrihm.

A stage is disguised as a dance floor.

A movement morphs into a performance.

Press the shuffle button inside the blackbox, and a series of natural accidents occur.
