Platform Theatre, London
An immersive movement-based performance looks at the idea of repetition and the circle of life.
Inspired by ‘rondo’, a type of musical form that involves repetition, refrain and layering, this performance looks into self-prying, self-searching, self-debate and self-discovery. Instead of using the traditional theatre space as it is, this show creates a new immersive perspective to the audience in re-designing the layout.
It is a research performance project that blurs the idea between set and installation art, costume and character, audience and performer, theatre and space.

@ The Black Lab, Central Saint Martins, London
The project achieved the 1st Distinction ( top 10% ) in BA Costume Design for Performance in London College of Fashion.
This performance based on the narrative of the tragic love relationship between the English romantic poet John Keats and his fiancee Fanny Brawne. Focusing on two particular stages of their relationship when she immerses into the memories of John and when she is forced to face the truth of Keats’s death.
The love letters and poems become the key elements of the story as they played a significant role in their spiritual communication during Keats illness.
This contemporary costume-driven dance piece also focuses on the disease and how it affects the human body, both mentally and physically, thorough decay and fragmentation.
Though the material remains its period essence, there is something internal about the meaning of this story, which reflects in our current life. The sending and receiving messages has become instant today. However, a love letter is timeless, as well as love itself.

The Panarmonion bar and stage on Lewis Cubitt square was a big highlight of the summer in King’s Cross. One of the stand-out events was BirdGang Dance Company’s Deja Bluez.

Merging the feel of a Victorian pleasure garden with a Harlem club, it incorporating decorated CDs, feathers and fabrics. LCF Costume Design graduate Sha Lu used sequins and beads to turn the singer’s dress into a constantly changing spectacle.
