Raw simplicity, physical engagement, a presence that is hard to ignore
With the attitude of "shared presence", I research how the moving body can relate to inner happening and at the same time allow to be observed by the audience.
There appear situations that we need to take part in. If we witness the beginning of an action, If something starts to happen, regardless of our will, we become its participants. And there are so many simultaneous beginnings of action we stop to acknowledge it. We drift in between the moment with a dose of significant disregard. In my solo, I confront feelings of determination, strong desire of reaction, result in change with absolute hopelessness, and resignation.
