#pop-up   #DanceVideo

Two young men put a table on their heads, reflecting on the meaning of life...

Combining martial arts, parkour and contemporary dance, Struck was originally conceived as a series of pop-up performances around Tai Kwun for unexpected encounters with the audience during the 48th HKAF last February. When their “table-on-the-head” loitering at Tai Kwun is captured on screen, it tells a different story in the style of Italian Neorealism.
