SOLO "DEP" PRESENTED IN LONDON

Dam will present a new solo on Thursday 6 November at St Georges’ Bloomsbury in London as part of Nexus.
Nexus is held on the first Thursday of each month, featuring established artists from diverse backgrounds fusing improvised modern jazz and the classical avantgarde.

Đẹp
Taking as a starting point the classic solo The Dying Swan by Michel Fokine, Đẹp - Vietnamese word for “beautiful” - questions cultures and their relation with death. Infused with Vietnamese funeral chants, the work explores traditional ideas of rebirth. In Vietnam the family and community help the dead to pass into the other world. Đẹp depicts this emotional journey through stages of grief from initial resistance to final surrender. The purpose is not to bury the deceased, but to send them off on their journey to the immortal world.
