Act I Requiem Today Breaks through the barriers of prejudice and reveals humanity, while reflecting on the extraordinary and courageous nature of humankind. Each chapter of this ballet carries an encrypted message. Expressive and bold, this show brings a glimpse of hope and unity, as well as incorporating a gender-neutral approach in partnering. All seven chapters are a puzzle to solve on one's own.

Act II P.O.L.A.R.I.S Venturing into uncharted territory, this act blends ballet with cutting-edge immersive technology and special effects, combining the performance with an otherworldly, alien undertone. This innovative approach makes us think of the potential impact of extraterrestrial intelligence on human society, our lives, and the environment. P.O.L.A.R.I.S. explores the concept of AI becoming sentient, examining the role of "alien" entities in our existence through art. This act challenges us to think of the ethical implications of encountering intelligent life beyond human society.

Followed by Q&A session with the cast
