& swan song

"& swan song" is a dance piece composed of five dancers who take a magnified look at the performance of violence and death as juxtaposed next to that of tenderness and intimacy.

"We seek to examine whether or not ferocity and affection can coexist in the same space, while attempting to discover the fine line between sincerity and exhibition. Through absurd faces and exaggerated gestures, we challenge the notion of what is authentic and what isn’t, especially considering that a stage is an arena where a polished presentation of oneself is expected. Throughout our piece, us five dancers perform the uncovering of humanness, and ask the audience to make their own judgments on what is real, what is pretend, what is comical, and what is heartbreaking."
