EFFECT 2 

Petr Zuska + Jen Shyu

Classical meets experimental. Ballet meets jazz.

 
Pre-dawn state. The dragon eats its own tail. Ouroboros. Constantly re-creating itself, the eternal return. Cycles that begin anew as soon as they end. Completion, uniting of polarities, regeneration, and eternity. Self-destroying, self-renewal. The opening of the sky.
