"We may have different cultures, spiritual beliefs, and perspectives that divide us. However, if we embrace these differences, harmonious relationships can be formed. There is a beauty to be found in life's conflicts and struggles."
"Harmony" is an interactive audio-visual performance that explores the balance of Yin and Yang through the sounds and visualizations of creation. The work begins with the creation of the Universe, Nature, and Humanity visualized through a projection. Light and Darkness, man and women - they coexist as components of a mutual whole. Following the introduction, a female dancer performs as Yin, representing the Moon, a male dancer who performs as Yang represents the Sun. Yin and Yang then perform together to explore the symmetries and to symbolize the balance that harmony creates. The two dancers interact to express their different contributions to overall harmony. Sounds correspond to the dancers' touch in real-time, amplifying with the degree of physical interaction.
