EXILE [2012]

October 12th - 14th @ 8PM [Matinee on Sunday]

Studio D, SFU Goldcorp Centre for the Arts, Vancouver

EXILE is a somber yet humourous theatrical dance work exploring diaspora, isolation and censorship. Set to composer Remy Siu’s cheeky and subversive, Hong Kong Exile, the work exists in nine movements performed by a live string quintet. EXILE plays with duration and expectation, using surgical masks as ever-transforming symbols of oppression, ritual, and consumerism.
