Taiwanese choreographer and dancer Liu Kuan-Hsiang is an explosive new talent on the international dance scene, whose luminous works often have autobiographical roots. Kids is a tribute to his late mother: it draws on recordings of conversations between her and Liu during her last days, which touch on family memories, illusion and reality, and her impending passing. From this emerges an unorthodox and dazzling meditation on the eternal cycle of birth, life and death. Three virtuosic dancers veer from calm ritualistic movement to twisted, frantic physical extremes, yet this deliriously wild and undulating work is suffused with serenity and even joy. Kidscelebrates the exuberance of life, in the face of death.
