There is a well-known quote in Sophie’s World: “Who are you? Where does the world come from?” Have you ever thought of a world where stone can speak?

One day a stone that has lived on Earth for a long time starts recounting the past to the world’s two sole organisms, which travels to the past to experience the happenings of the world. On a dark stage, both audiences and dancers come across the most primitive immersive experience and ponder over the existence of “self”.

Les Curious Fringes – Blast of the Cave is created by Tracy Wong, choreographer of the well-established Shelf Life, in collaboration with Hong Kong artist Mao Wei and artists from France and Belgium. Through a wide range of innovative visual elements and installations on stage, the performance creates a space transcending the boundary of time for deliberation of the origins and development of life.
