Transforming Masks

Transforming Masks is a dance that slowly reveals the layers of identity that one wears. There are three layers of masks worn on the body of the performer. The movements are supposed to resemble gestures of shielding and punching, which represent the defensive attitude one has towards concealing and revealing their identity. At the same time, the artist realizes that theses movements speak to something older - the Tang-ki ritual he watched with his grandmother as a child.
