A Separated Self explores feelings of detachment from one's self; an internal conflict and the resulting confusion, turmoil and search of peace. It stems from an awareness of mental health challenges, of the feeling of not recognizing your own 'self'.
Choreographer: Ming-Bo Lam
Dancers: Lauren Lyn and Sarah MacDonald
Music: "Faust, Episode 2: Nachspiel" by Karsten Gundermann & Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
