Hands ᛫ Footprint ᛫ Sound #danceless performance series

A body action becomes a voice that echoes into infinity.

May it be a hand or a foot. The sound that it makes shall resonate.

Finding inspiration in everyday life, we return to the basics to recall our dance instinct.

Unlock Dancing Plaza has been exploring the possibilities and pleasures of the body rhythm based on the notion of #danceless. The company advocates that “everyone can dance”. The showcase will invite both amateur and professional artists, regardless of their backgrounds, to express themselves and connect with the community.

Among the three public shows of #danceless, the first two will be co-performed by workshop participants and company artists. The last performance, Sound, will be performed by the Unlock artists.
