Movement Logic Re-Pot 2013is a work of conceptual dance, exploring the logic of movement through the pure language of dance.
The work assumes the form of scholastic report, for the purpose of researching into the logic of movement, and showcasing how different bodies react to the same stimulus. The dance, on one hand, pays special attention to the aesthetics of the body movement, expressed through a poetic use of the dance language; on the other hand, dissects analytically the relationship between the body and the movement, revealing the intricacy of the logic behind.
