NOTHING for body

Body Image Work

NOTHING for body

2012 Aerowaves 20

2012 2nd prize & Audience prize at Erfurt Tanztheater Festival – Contact Energy, Germany

This work has been developed from live media performance “NOTHING” as pure body work.

The body is the stage, fingers and toes are the dancers.

Delicate expression of small part of the body is shown through the space which the body builds.

I tried to find how the part of the body moves like whole body and the possibilities that they can express like a human. 

We know about ourselves.But what do others know about us?
They only see their opinion of me, look at a part of me and interpret it as they want. They think they know me. But it’s NOTHING.
