-Official Text-

From which side of the black-white spectrum does one prefer — to view things from the blight or the dark side?

This dance performance aims to research the subjectivity of color perception. We find distance within and empathy through each other. 100 years after Goethe wrote “Farbenlehre – Theory of Colours” underneath sun, moon, star, and candle light, Japanese author Tanizaki wrote “In Praise of Shadows” under electric light. Currently technologies are greatly expanded since then, but has the technological developments improve our color identification? It is possible to create movement and sound with this perception? I have set the colors as a scenario and let the choreographer and musicians create movement and sound inside the colored-light, inspired by Goethe’s research, all of which was written under candle light.
