The English philosopher R.G Collingwood once declared that “dance was the mother of all languages” to this thought he choreographed a moment that could transcend language barriers and break boundaries. Starring the love child of a marriage of oriental and occidental cultures and dancing the moves of a historical European art, whilst wearing a dress whose roots begin in Ancient Chinese legend. The glory of this intercultural exchange was dreamt up in an enticing reverie. He saw a planet that had been ravaged by meaningless battles; he grew tired of witnessing the devastating circumstances of clashes of culture... Whilst in his mind a beautiful phantasm marked through a routine, Collingwood sat there and pondered the prospect of how one who could benefit from the best of both worlds, artistically and spiritually, in a dance of affinitive appreciation...
