A crosstalk-inspired performance that speaks, leaps and communicates through dance.

At once fresh and innovative, this dance work finds its roots in Chinese crosstalk, drawing meaning from daily life to express and evoke emotion and imagery. Set to the rhyme and rhythm of crosstalk, it explores the bittersweet ironies of life and living through the ebb and flow of dance, in a journey that resolves in tears and laughter.

This exciting work is co-choreographed by Taiwanese choreographer Wu Yi-San and T.H.E Dance Company artistic director Kuik Swee Boon, with dancers from Singapore and Taiwan. Singapore crosstalk pioneer Han Lao Da serves as Crosstalk Consultant.

A Huayi 2014 festival commission. The Ordinary Man is developed from Crosstalk, one of a triple-bill of dance works featured in Solo/Duet, which was commissioned by the NUS Centre for the Arts and presented at the NUS Arts Festival 2012.
