An interplay between movement and the body, focusing on sensing and relating. The body is used as a tool for embodiment of reflexivity. There is no sense of “I” without it’s correlative

sense of you, or s/he, or they. By incorporating technologies, we recreate the idea of embodiment. Our “reach” extends through the engines of virtual reality, a curated avatar of our offline self, connecting with other aviators to create interactions and relationships that are unique to these virtual spaces.



Choreographer | CHAN Wai-lok
Performers | CHAN Wai-lok, LEE Ka-hei, Carman LI

Here comes with an adventure in an experimental pornographic film making, where you will be exposed to sexual scenes inviting subjective observations and perspectives into eroticism.

Pleasure in the air, loading;
Excitement in the vibration, loading;
Nudity in the affection, loading;
Intoxication in the body, loading;
Softness in the eyes, loading,
coming, shoot.

With the beautifully obscene scenes as backdrop, you are cordially invited to ride the senses here♥

“We know that they are lying, they know that they are lying, they even know that we know they are lying, we also know that they know we know they are lying too, they of course know that we certainly know they know we know they are lying too as well, but they are still lying.” Russian writer and Nobel Prize winner, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

We don’t even know whether the words from us are as intended, or simply lies.
In a time like now, can people still be able to speak freely or at their own will?
If speech is essentially a power game, probably we have to learn how to speak and express properly so as to be able to harness the game.
