The exhibition also explores the notion of contemporary, as classically trained practitioners continue pushing boundaries in interpretation and expression. Themes explored include: roots and identity, unpacking of traditional
dance, COVID-19, and the purpose of dance.

3. Life-Sized Holographic Mesh Projections
