Enter the maze of déjà vu, trapped by our own memories. In every delicate moment, memories seem so close and yet so far. It is slowly swallowed by time. Struggling between remembering and forgetting scattered names, distorted faces, floating time, transforming scenes and familiar plots. What is left inside is emptiness. In this misplaced world, what is real? What is fake?
As If To Nothing is an adrenaline-packed and interactive multimedia work created by the internationally renowned choreographer Sang Jijia, featuring electronic music by Dickson Dee and video design by Adrian Yeung. This tour-de-forcereturns for another breathtaking journey led by CCDC dancers and their extremely physical and emotional performance.
