We are all dressed in black attempting to dance in sync to a disco-pop hit. This piece emphasizes the feeling of oneness with others and then discovering personality and individuality. I reconstructed the choreography of Filipino kids dancing in the streets and at social gatherings. I took the song from a group called Dreamhouse. It was a remix. A couple of years later I found out that it was a Danish duo from the Seventies who had written the song. I thought I had given the world something from my country of birth and then brought it back to Denmark. But I had actually just brought the song back to where it came from.
Born in 1970 in Manila, Philippines. Lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark.
