a multi-dimensional dance experience
#FMIAUW

As we find ourselves wedged in the era of post-truth, the world is increasingly what we choose to believe in.

There is a Chinese saying called 指鹿為馬, which literally translates as “pointing to a deer and calling it a horse”. Traditionally, the term is used as a criticism for those who reverse black and white. Yet increasingly, such appears to be the norm for contemporary existence. In a world of memes and fake news, the ability to fabricate meaning is almost regarded as a skill set essential for survival. Finding Meaning in an Uncertain World explores how meaning can be exploited, distorted and manipulated; who holds the power to what is "true".

 

In this 50-minute dance piece, choreographer Victor Fung explore the logos of contemporary dance by turning his focus to spectatorship; how contemporary dance generate meaning for the audience and how that meaning can be volatile and ever-changing.
