Combines Chinese Classical dance and Modern dance to create my unique aesthetic. It is an after-life world following the theory of the circle of life in Chinese Buddhism and Tibetan Buddhism. It starts from death and follows the soul after death through the journey to start a new life again. There are four main sections that follow the seasons of Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter in terms to design elements, with the Equinox and Solstice representing the lightest and darkest days of the year. The five elements from Chinese Fengshui theory, water, fire, wood, gold and earth, are used to highlight the Chineseness in this piece.

Shape in Water  ​
Solo
Length: 6 min/8 min/15 min 
Choreographer/Dancer: Allen Chunhui Xing
Lighting Design: Brandi Martin
Music: The Departure by Max Richter

As a young child, my father taught me to swim. I enjoy swimming and go diving often. The feeling of weightlessness and lightness in the water removes pressure found on land and allows my inner-self to explore. I look to the sun through the surface, deep under water in awe. I am a good swimmer, but also afraid of the water. The silence below the surface; the danger lurking beyond sight; the seclusion; combining to create a sense of exhilaration, of anticipation. The inspiration of Shape in Water was from the image I had of a man falling to the bottom of the ocean. The subconscious thinking process that he had lingering between life and death. It embodies the memory of my sense of water and the conflict between desire and fear.

Another Side of You
Length: 30 min
Choreography: Allen Chunhui Xing
Lighting Design: Dylan Uremovich

Interactions are often defined by our outward persona. Sometimes there is a gap between how one is perceived and how one perceives oneself. Our own personal journeys often involve balancing where we are internally and externally. How do we perceive ourselves? How do others perceive us? There may be conflicts rooted deep emotions of happiness, sadness, hope, hopelessness, love, hate, honesty, deception, involvement, isolation, comfort, uneasiness. For all, it is a personal journey…
