As an experiment on kinetic choreography for the future, Metamorphose will bring an exquisite sensation by assembling the dancing body and gigantic medium in the immersive dome space.
The body, the object, and the space, as the agent respectively, develop an organic bonding, constantly chiselling and transforming the textures of one another. The metamorphosis of perceived body movements leads to a new landscape of embodiment. Metamorphose liberates the imagination of dance moves and the essence of corporeal entities. Crossing the border of physical and virtual space, the audience, together with the dancer, can freely explore future choreographic aesthetics under the dome.
