TOHU explores our chaotic existence as a mere reflection of our known universe. This captivating duet takes on various macro-processes that occur in the large universe and transpires them as abstract and metaphorical processes. The artists draw the viewer into their re-imagined micro-universe as they strive to make sense of our most enigmatic behaviours.
"Challenging the very existence of the art form by pitting it comparatively against the ways of the universe and the philosophical order of things" -- Form Dance Projects.
