Description

'As David fights against Goliath, we live.' Kim Elan's infinite and powerful work is inspired by the story of Goliath. Through dance, it paints a picture of us as small and powerless human beings, resistant to natural disasters and expressing our feelings in harmony with the stage. This highly acclaimed work from Moden Dance Company mixes traditional and modern dance with dynamic yet delicate results.
