Stunning Photography from The Search for Xiao Li’s Head

0 Comment

If you were unfortunate enough to miss out on seeing The Search for Xiao Li’s Head in the ACT’s stunning bamboo garden, check out the fabulous photography taken by Justin Foo while the performances were on.

Working on this piece has allowed the ACT to take a journey with this little short story written by Dr. Moni Lai Storz and see it transformed into a thoughtful and beautiful dance piece, led and choreographed by Meah Velik-Lord. To make it even more magical, the dancers performed to a Chinese harp played by Ivan Sun Ngan.

A brilliant collaboration between the ACT, Travel Art Dance Company and Mr. Ivan Sun Ngan.
