a slow awkward


web-asa-1

a slow awkward is a kinetically charged collision of opposing energies, a dance that reflects on the duet of feminine and masculine that exists within. Choreographed by Ziyian Kwan, created and performed in collaboration with James Gnam, Dylan Van Der Schyff, Peggy Lee and James Proudfoot, a slow awkward exposes the violence and vulnerability at times innate, to the process of individuation.

Performances: April 23-26, 2014  CanAsian Dance, Toronto |  Dancing on the Edge 2014 , Vancouver | Dance In Vancouver 2015
