This is a game Shing Lee played with the dancer who is his brother, Joseph Lee.
"Wait without thought, for you are not ready for thought: So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing." A quote from T.S. Eliot’s East Coker, Four Quartets inspired the creation of this film.

Artist’s Statement

I am always fascinated with the preparation leading to something. This preparation is an important ritual for me. It is like the whole universe coming together for a point which the “Turn On” and “Turn Off” button is like a “switch” in between the lines, the reality and imagination, the silence and movement.
