In succession to the 5 Part Dance in 2011, Zuni Icosahedron once again invited Cloud Gate 2, founded by renowned choreographer Lin Hwai-min, to bring the masterpiece Oculus by the late genius Wu Kuo-chi. Oculus is the Latin word for eye, or eye-shaped window; it is also the circular opening on the roof of the dome of the Pantheon. Wu Kuo-chu wishes that through Oculus one can see light and hope regardless of the layers of human bondage. This work was first performed by the Staatstheater Kassel, Germany in 2004, and by Cloud Gate 2 in Taiwan in 2007. This time it will be premiered in Hong Kong by Cloud Gate 2.
