ABOUT

In 2015, Norhaizad Adam experimented with BELON, showcasing his short work to a global audience as part of the ATLAS residency programme at ImPulsTanz - Vienna. This year, he delved deeper, inflating the idea to bring about an introspective full-length piece. This will be P7:1SMA's first foray into contemporary dance productions.

 

"Balloon: Thing to take meteoric observations and commit suicide with."

- Mark Twain

BELON explores the paradoxical nature of art. Its purpose is to occupy and engage that place of in-betweenness. Much like husks floating along the wind, embracing and repelling instant shifts. It is a narrative that desires to uncover the equilibrium between convention and contemporary.
