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 algorithm.

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.
