#pop-up acts   #dance video

Two young men put a table on their heads, reflecting on the meaning of life…

Intertwining martial arts, parkour, contemporary dance and, whatever, they try to resolve the conflicts under the table and reveal their stories.

Struck was originally conceived as a series of pop-up acts at different parts in Taikwun for unexpected encounters with the audience during the Hong Kong Arts Festival last February.
