Departures and Arrivals



Lo, Fang Yun
PACT Zollverein

 Devised for young audiences and winningly combining light, words and sounds with elements of parkour, contemporary dance and hip-hop, ›Luceo‹, follows four dancers on an incredible journey in search of a magical source of light. Framed by a strikingly stage set made up of versatile geometric shapes, their adventure takes them through radiant nocturnal landscapes and firefly fields. Along the way, they learn to overcome difficulties and to both trust one another and their own feelings until ultimately everything seemingly circles back on itself and they are back where all searches begin – with their own selves.

The German – Taiwanese co-production ›Luceo‹ premiered in July 2017 at the Taipei Children’s Art Festival and was created in part during a residency at PACT.
