Imagine one morning, you wake up with a cup of coffee that smells like coffee, tastes like coffee but it is something else. Concrete objects and solid matters may appear convincing in its shapes and size but the essence is lost in its transmission. So what can that brown-bitter-tasted liquid be?

The ever-changing world is re-interpreting itself every second to make life more exciting and facilitate everyone’s understanding of the world around them. Meaning is projected in uncanny (false) recognitions to urge one to recognize and re-recognize the well-recognized objects and matters. In that case, is what we see truly what it is?

Artists from Hong Kong, the Netherlands, Croatia and Sweden will extend the 27 scenes of awkwardness from the ITs Festival in Amsterdam and Hong Kong International Dance Symposium. Join the world of absurdity!
