Personal Mythologies is an act of self-mythologising. The performance shifts from one spectacle to another: a human installation, an improvisation championship, a danceoff between the victor and the creator of the choreographic game. Immersive and selfreflexive, in this work everyone is a performing body, and all bodies are the synthesis of the ultimate spectacle.

The latest offering by award-winning dance provocateur Shian Law and his creative team, Personal Mythologies queries the power relations of authorship versus spectatorship and interrogates the theatrical and the spectacular.
