L TRAIN is an evening length contemporary dance work that involves seven dancers, four chairs, six acts, audio recording of the L Train MTA subway, spoken word, partnering, floorwork, improvisation,
storytelling, conceptual art, and street dance influences.
L Train speaks about us – about the uncomfortable common sensation that we are not in control of events. Even if one moment, right now, is precious, it will not last forever. Relationships, patterns, work, views, people, personalities, and thoughts are all subject to change. Where is the stability? Anything can change in a few seconds, with or without acknowledging it. At the end, life seems like the L train line: everyone goes in the same direction, but nobody has the same destination.
YOU DON’T HAVE TO LOVE ME, JUST ACCEPT ME
You don’t have to love me, just accept me(my existence).
I acknowledge we cannot agree with everything or everyone.
But We have to respect each other’s existence or boundaries.
We cannot hurt people. Hurting someone is meaningless.
Accepting everyone’s existence is called “coexisting”.
In this piece, We want to express this message:
“We are totally different, and this is our power and best quality, acceptance for diversity and exploring the unknown is what makes progress and beauty.”
“BLOCKS” is a new kind of online live performance named – Joining Style Performance
We wanted to break the ordinary idea of performance transforming it in an interactive place to share and discuss concepts together. The performance was created for and with the audience. We improvised movement and words rotating around the concept of the children blocks game. We reacted to everything happening around us and the audience. We let audience, thoughts, dance, events guide us.
“WHO IS ART FOR?”
“WHO IS MY WORK FOR?”
WHY CAN WE DO IT HERE, BUT NOT THERE?
An improv-interactive performance in collaboration with Twisty Bonbon.
Trying to find a way that both you and others can shine, instead of pushing down each other. Each voice is valuable and important. This performance is made for and with you!
This is going to be our first session together. And, if we can make a good performance, can there be any hints that we can use in other everyday scenes? Or is it something that only we, as artists & art lovers, can do only in this space?
