“Nilpotent Group” is not symbolic nor is it based on historical event or traditional tales. It is an abstract dance that explores movement and spatial aesthetics. Questions and answers on aesthetics are addressed through the dance’s movements, treatment of space, and time. The choreographer has left it to the audience to decide whether to appreciate the dance in its abstraction or extract a more personal interpretation.

Moments of happiness allow us to seek questions and answers form “space” and “time”.
