兩個女生,以身對話,以舞動、形體、行為藝術構作的親密小品。
身體是盛載記憶的房間,房間內面面鏡子反照看見看不見的各種自我。

我們需要幾多愛才能抹去種種傷痕和恐懼?
觸不可及的情感,放手才能抱住的影子,一同閉上眼睛,傾聽一呼一吸,把無數的鏡子合而為一。
不分內外,沒有如初,只有當下,當下我們親密如常,和好如一。


*演出長約三十五分鐘。

This is a short intimate piece of touch, movement, form and performance arts. It is a bodily conversation between two females.

Our body is a room full of memories. And there are many mirrors inside the room reflecting our various self, whether you can or cannot see it. How much love we need to overcome our fear and injury? Our untouchable emotions. To let go our shadow in order to grasp it. We close our eyes, listen to our breath, and merge all the mirrors into one.

There is no inside or outside. No return to where we were. There is only present. This moment we remain close as before.

*Running time approx. 35 mins.

Statement written by Wong Sze Mei

A video depicting an emotional status of women in the process of their reconciliation with their own body. Female body is often considered as a battlefield of gender equality and independency. The distorted treatment of the video portrays the female’s mental split and struggles against the mainstream expectation. A closed and transparent glass room signifies the conservative, patriarchal panopticon to supervise female behaviour. Dancers tries to dance like a smoke in a room to represent the variable and transformative spirit. However, from the perspective of a viewer, a liberated female is often considered as a madwoman because of her refusal to comply the social role. Thus, the video tries to depict the uncanny and psychedelic sense of such.
