Tra Mi Dinh

A high energy work that has three dancers stuck in a loop - enduring, struggling, and performing their way towards clarity and resolution. In a world of unstoppable motion, our role as viewer is challenged as we witness the ridiculous/unrelenting marathon of life (dance) alongside the dancers.
