Slipping Sand

"Slipping Sand" is a close examination on human's relentless relationship to time. Encased in a glass atrium, surrounded by hourglasses, a single dancer contemplates the desire to manipulate time, acknowledges her powerlessness, and inches towards acceptance.

Director Statement

My creative explorations stem from a love of culture, communication, and collaboration, a direct reflection of my mixed heritage as a first generation, Chinese-American, Jewish artist. My works often feature layered sound scores or video installations, which generate complex storytelling experiences that welcome community dialogue and debate.
