Wéi – in mandarin means “to become”. It’s also a play on sound – wéi – which also means why? This work proposes that a group can write a cohesive story together on stage – depicted through spontaneous composition from these five dancers creating an abstract non-linear narrative.
“My interest lies in the exploration of the question ‘what makes us who we are?’ Is it memory (biological) or is it imitation (experience) or is it all preordained and our fate is set? This is a glimpse into what we’re creating that we want to share with you. We would love to provide regular updates on the progression of this piece and hear from you.” – Yvonne Ng, Artistic Director
