This work is about channeling hip hop energy into contemporary movement; destructuring the codes of diverse disciplines; establishing a reserve of rich, precise and varying materials to use in the hybridization of dancing.
There is a multiplicity of awareness and understanding of these paths which meet and confront each other, changing the dance: Crossroads is indeed a crossroads, a meeting place for this wide range of dances, without artifice, represented only by movement in its many manifestations.
Crossroads is also a form of reflection on our relationships, personal journeys and the many faces we show to ourselves and others.
Over the haunting sound of Hong Kong traffic lights shaping the rhythm of the city, Amala Dianor mockingly examines the intersecting journeys which constitute our identitary constructions.
In Crossroads, Amala Dianor helps us to follow the journeys of five beings, from the street where they may be passing, masked, to the place where their intimate selves collide.
