Chinese folklore contends that the horizon is the frontier between life and the hereafter. Souls of the departed live as shadows across that frontier - Huang Yi endeavors to bring them back to life. Huang and audiovisual artist Ryoichi Kurokawa developed groundbreaking video techniques to craft a world where shadows and humans meet. In this breathtaking work, Huang and his dancers, enveloped by the internationally acclaimed Nederlands Kamerkoor, travel to the hereafter riding on the ethereal sounds of the human voice. Throughout this journey, the shadows are so close and vivid that their ultimate inability to merge with their human visitors is all at once strikingly beautiful and tragically bittersweet.
