Continuing working on the concept of modification I went on with a research of forming walls with a help of contemporary and traditional Chinese dance motion, music, light and bodies. I kept on merging limits of cultural experience in West and East, observed their formation and deformation, explored their links and divisions. All the research was reflected in a contemporary dance project “A short stopping in front of a lit window””, where I ask once again: what a wall is?
