Pamela Tzeng

With death in arms, then at her feet, Jo-Lee muses on what has given her unconventionally conventional life meaning. In this bare bones duet, Tzeng leaps into fragmented memories of an imagined “other”, crafting a poetic and playful theatrical dance that embraces existential longing and mortality.

“A Meditation on the End” by Jo-Lee artistically mines the emotional landscape of grief.  The work draws from a fascination with the Buddhist concept of ‘bardos’ – the state of existence between two lives, after death and before one’s next birth and the phenomenon of life flashing before one’s eyes in near death experiences.
