Fish Under The Sunrise

A documentary explores the boundaries of experimental dance performance through a captivating story of two spirits seeking redemption. The performance follows the journey of a 'dead fish' taken from a bathtub in a New York City apartment all the way to Coney Island via the metro.Through this journey, we can see through our existence in the urban environment, where we often feel trapped and suffocated like fish in a tank.  While you are losing your breath from the harsh environment, who will be the one to save your out of this dark tank? Where is our imaginary blue sea? 

Fish - Dish on the table, Swim under the sea

The passengers has interacted with the fish and considered it as a pet. The fish has sensed the environment and became excited, jumping out of the basin. It was finally saved and returned  to the ocean from the surrounding mens.The full live documentary is 2 hours long.

 A Chair Sits On Me

"I want to challenge the relationship between the object and the human body, changing the passive relationship between the object and the human body; I wanted to redefine any object rather than by its function. Because objectivity could be self-active, as my body is potentially supportive, and a chair is potentially be supported.”
