Why are we afraid of dragons? Certainly because in Europe the figure of the dragon symbolised negative natural phenomena and evil. In Asia it is quite different. The dragon represents goodness and strength. It is this strength that the dancers from five different Asian countries embody in Eun-Me Ahn's new production. All were born in the Year of the Dragon and represent the digital generation as well as the regional choreographic heritage. The piece transports the audience into a futuristic world where shapes and colours mix, where the mystical is combined with an avant-garde stage design and where dragons are no longer feared.
