CCDC resident artist Noel Pong has choreographed her first solo performance. In a small room that looks like a black box, she gradually narrows the distance between the performance and the audience, starting an intimate discussion in our hearts.

Audience members are invited to move freely inside the venue while keeping a distance of two metres from each other. In some sessions, they are also welcome to take photos from different angles and post on social media.

Although the audience is alienated because of social distancing, they are in an intimate space with Noel, transcending the traditional opposition between the conventional stage and auditorium.
