However, as human beings continue to change and challenge nature, the earth's environment is also accelerated. Such as droughts, floods, locust disasters ... and the coronavirus which has recently changed global transportation, economics, politics, and people's livelihood.
The choreographer will use the occurrence and evolution of the Ice Age to metaphor all beings in the force of drastic environmental changes. People lose control because of fear, and the entire social system becomes vulnerable. The needs and voices of people in the middle and lower strata under the social structure of different classes are even more disregarded in the situation.
Between destruction and rebirth, there’s full of unknowns and fears. The meaning and value of life deserve our deep consideration and rethink.
The three dancers in the dance metaphorically represent the different classes in society: the power / rich man or the politician, the middle class, and the disadvantaged ethnic group. Although the three are moving towards the same goal under the drastic environmental changes. Due to the different classes, collision, intersection, and reaction of the three parallels in the forward process.
