Meepao with Multimedia

Meepao is a dance in celebration of all the departed, especially the ones who are deemed inconsequential. Using minimal movements, Meepao invites the spectator into a space where dancers and non-dancers alike can join in this celebration. It begins with simple movements of the feet. The movements repeat, as though creating its own ritual, and finds its depth and textures through the synchronicity of bodies dancing together to the beat of live music. They slowly transcend into a liminal space where the living (“mee”) convey a message (“pao”) of harmony.
