With death in arms, then at her feet, Jo-Lee muses on what has given her life meaning. In this bare bones duet, Tzeng leaps into the fragmented memories of an imagined other, crafting a theatrical dance that embraces the poetry and humour of existential longing.

The Body Project is a new interdisciplinary performance created from interviews, symposiums and round-tables with people of diverse ages, backgrounds and perspectives who identify as female, non-binary or on the femme spectrum. The movement has been mined from our unique struggles with body image, and the comic/tragic relentlessness of “cultural” pressure. We are exploring questions around body image and how we navigate this unsteady terrain in our personal and professional lives.
