“Dialogues in the Dark” is a mixture of contemporary dance and poetry/spoken words performance, with minimal set and props, but with generous usage of lighting and visual projections. The meaning behind “Dialogues in the Dark” is that we want to create a safe space where people can express honest impressions, thoughts, and attitudes without the fear of being ridicule. The safe space also demands the ones to enter be open minded and attempt to empathize with others’ feelings and believes, even those with whom they differ.
For the performance, contemporary dance and poetry/spoken word are combined together, with the contemporary dance responding directly to the content and motion of the poem/spoken word. The emotions, the punctuation, the words and moments are translated into action by the dancers.
This hour-long performance aims to explore topics on:
Beauty & Body Positivity | Love | Mental Health | Diversity & Inclusion | Disabilities | Women Empowerment
followed by a 30-minute Q&A session along with a panel discussion about “Diversity and Inclusion”.
