Description: The concept is to design a restricted field of vision in which the peripheral is limited. Only objects directly in line with the eyes can                           be seen, creating a series of segmented views. For this performance, the diagonal lines are important markers, since the diagonal                         paths at the performance space guide the audience's eyes to one particular perspective where one particular movement is to be                             seen.

Darkness Before Dawn 


The Rivers between 

the invisible mountains 

and the obscure sea.

It rained continuously.

Lost in the storm of intensity 

Icy winds and brutal waves.

Rattling peddles

The river of change.

Restless being.

Drags me down.

Moving along. 

Moving against.

I could feel the tide of life 

flow through me in lengthening waves.

End up in still waters. 

The rain drips. 

I sank into a misty world 

realizing I was the river. 

My own blood, my life.

Now I open my eyes. 

My life spread out. 

And see forever a human vision. 

Is there light at the end of this tunnel?
