Confession Ain't Solo


*commissioned by Hong Kong Art Festival 2017

**part of the Contemporary Dance Series programme Dance Off

Dance/ Sound Art Collaboration 

Creation 2017

​Duration: 15 mins

Confession Ain’t Solo is a contemporary dance work collaborating with sound artist Alex Yiu, exploring the unique, yet important action of human being, confession, which leads to the complex discussion about the power relationship between the one who confesses and the one who receive the confession; the necessity of seeking forgiveness in many western religious philosophies; the notion of Original Sin; the people who are forced to confess in all time. It’s talking about a prominent part attribuiting human nature.


Alex uses 10 cassette player to record dancer’s sound live and then play in loops in order to create an unique soundscape offering the space and emotions for the dancer to react to. It brings the audiences to where we’ve all been to, the moments that we feel ashamed of ourselves, the relief after being forgiven, the guilt that drills holes in our heart… The sound created by oneself at the end comes back in endless loops and alters our body and mind at the end.
