Silent Bell is a choreography developed in turmoil, made in tandem with self-conflict over love, change, and silence. It is the idea of frustration made visible on stage. Told through the days of a man whose sole purpose is to respond when he is called on, it tackles what happens when his discipline is wrought with obstacles, both as eye-opening experiences and misguided temptation. When a defined “self-purpose” is questioned, what does one do? How does one face the unknown existences around him? What does he lose? What does he gain?
It is a story of discovery or distraction; of estrangement, and loss.
