If you feel like you didn’t understand some aspects of contemporary dance-, Joseph Lee explains it to you. As in a lecture-performance he connects his ironic treatise about communication in contemporary dance with extravagant solo dance inserts.
Lee amazes especially with his exceptional dealing with movement and language. Suddenly, a daily gesture transforms into a dance move, sometimes the language pauses, and what was a dialogue once becomes a choreography. With the help of elements of movement, light, tone and space he creates a universal, multicultural language, which is able to compete against the borders of verbal language.
On the black, empty stage, the artist sits alone on a white chair, the room is flooded with colorful lights, rhythmically adapted for transcendental, electric sounds.
Lee does not need much to take the audience to this absurd-curious, charming trip of choreography, which leaves a permanent echo in the heads of the audience.
