"Fall Of A Sudden" by Muse Motion to offer surreal dance experience
Innovative local dance company Muse Motion will perform its latest dance presentation, "Fall Of A Sudden", in July. In collaboration with the artistic director and choreographer, Allen Lam, and the musical talents, PC Muñoz and Kyle Bruckmann, from San Francisco, "Fall Of A Sudden" offers a surreal dance experience comprising motion, stillness and the cycle of life.
In this performance, Allen Lam will guide the audience in witnessing a situation beyond control and a crazy, vain struggle that becomes a pulsating and flowing movement. After all, following the inner voice may help the individual to reach peace of mind.
The dance continues, and the twisted body becomes an empty shell that has forgotten its way. The mind triggers the will to struggle. When all the frenzy and yell abate, a stronger voice takes over, and the body awakens in the warmth of engaging music.
"Fall Of A Sudden" depicts dancers getting lost in the sea. Water floods the body from all directions. The dancers feel suffocated and are dragged backwards. The sea that they love is suddenly a source of terror. They struggle madly, but the more they struggle the more disoriented they become.
Yet the body starts to become one with the stormy water. They float and flow with the rhythm. They hear music coming from their souls! So they let go: the music calms them, and the movements of their bodies make them conscious and alive. Between motion and stillness is the cycle of life. "Fall Of A Sudden" tugs at your subconscious and invites it to join the flow!
