Liminal Valley

Choreography by Kyki Li

Liminal Valley explores the multiple power dynamic that plays on any given day in one’s mind, such as manipulation, peer pressure, top-down guidance and internalized self-evaluating system. Percussionist Ed Cunneen and designer Amy Wang created original sound score and installation that will collectively, with the five dancing bodies, shape a world of crushing inner struggle.

Dancers: Victoria Aukland, Krystal Shantel Jimenez,  Gal Snir, Sydney Vahl, Cameron Zinke
