Wen Wei Dance | Dialogue


Dialogue is a piece for six men that explores themes of contact, communication and language – both spoken and unspoken. Underlying our learned ability to speak language, there is a fundamental urge to communicate.

Drawing on Wen Wei Wang’s personal experience as a non-English speaking immigrant to Canada, Dialogue explores the basic desire to be understood, and the loneliness when one does not achieve those rare honest connections with others. Dialogue strives to break down the sophisticated and artificial systems of language and technology to examine the universality of communication and of our collective experience.

Dialogue is not about diversity, it is diverse.” - Brian Webb
