Opus 16: Point of Departure -- Beautiful Ghosts

Category: Set Design, Costume Design

Design Statement

Beautiful Ghost is a dance piece. I'm the set and costume designer.

Choreographer was inspired by the bleak, powerful and row poetry of Xu Lizhi a young anonymous Chinese assembly line worker in an electronics super factory who took his life in late 2014. His frustrated words offer a silently potent voice to an overworked, underpaid generation of young factory workers who were sadly compelled to take their own lives.

Set before a stark and unsurmountable concrete wall, Beautiful Ghosts is a story about hope, about change and about the power of unity, using gritty athletic choreography combined with elements of contact, circus and text work..

My Design concept for the set is to create the cold and inhumanity factory atmosphere, therefore, i designed a tall and simple concrete wall. It is tall and huge, feeling of hopeless and being trapped.

For the costume, all human looks like mannequin or robot . They are manipulate by others, no rights, no thinking. All dancer have a basic costume of leotard which print the joint on it like the mannequin. Some dancer even wear the outer dance dress by the other dancer on stage.
