Blue Fish

Drawing upon a traditional Japanese view of nature and the philosophy of Tao, blue fish is a solo contemporary dance performance that encourages the audience to perceive the intangible, the beauty of being as it is, which affirms and nurtures the ephemeral nature and dignity of life. Evoking a sense of hope, blue fish explores the possibility for equilibrium, embracing both stillness and chaos as the paths for transformation when we recognize that we are nature itself.
