Choreography: Xing Liang (Hong Kong/China)
As Is is Xing Liang’s first work for T.H.E. The renowned Hong Kong choreographer delves into his new found spirituality to create a dance that will resonate deep within the soul of the audience. As Is blends fast and accurate movements with text and a haunting soundscape. The work makes a powerful statement, yet displays the subtle, fleeting and often inexplicable nuances of existence all at the same time.
Praise for As Is:
“The company has really synergised with palpable energy and confidence after years of dedication, experimentation and working together.” – Stephanie Burridge , The Flying Inkpot.
