Artistic Director Wen Wei Wang brings a cast of seven dancers to the stage in the spellbinding production, 7th Sense. Wang’s evocative movement style creates visual metaphors in an exploration of human behaviour and what drives us. Stemming from the dichotomy of our need to be loved and the conflicting urge to maintain control, Wang and his dancers express our deepest emotions with elegant, aggressive physicality.
The tension between freedom and control provided the electricity and corporeal language for [7th Sense], traversing the performers’ lithe bodies with unsettling force. The work crackled with vitality through the constantly shifting patterns and relationships between the seven dancers.
