£12* | £10* Concession
Dam Van Huynh draws upon the words of writers, poets, activists as an awakening to his displaced experience as a child refugee from the Vietnam war.
Moving from a state of disorientation into a state of consciousness, Re:birth retraces a personal experience of rediscovery. The performance unravels a recollection of visual impressions and sensations, a memory book whose pictures and stories long forgotten begin to resurface, a distortion between memories and dreams.
Movement responds to a field of light, sound and voice to elude the senses. Winner of the Asian Arts Award for Best Directing 2018

“Van Huynh is in his own very stylised world, and has perfected the art of drawing an audience into it.” CriticalDance Forum
“We, and the dancers, are forcefully confronted with our frailty, but also, ultimately, with our capacity for regeneration. Life goes on.”
“throughout Dep, I am on the edge of my seat.”
“A powerful work with a terrible beauty all of its own.”
