Ina’s South Asian Bollywood pop dance meets Emily’s Chinese classical dance that has roots from the silkroad. These two emergent choreographers from distant yet similar interests will join their bodies and spirits in movement
online and in cyberspace. This performance will turn your head around. A wild and twisted delight not to be missed!

Haunted by “communication” even in the most basic of meanings, Janet Lumb loves to connect in virtual reality and in real time with those from afar and near. Reaching out beyond the limits, she celebrates the moment of chance and happenstance in the interplay between the most unlikely sorts.
