Hao Cheng's background in mathematics gives him a unique perspective on both abstract ideas and flesh-and-blood performance. His dynamic solo for Incandescence Dance is a quietly thrilling meeting of popular science and the poetry of motion. The action is set on a blackboard-like platform transformed by a rainfall of chalk – and Cheng's ceaselessly nimble, emotive movement – into a visual art installation. A highly personal and proudly low-tech examination of the seemingly unresolvable contradictions of being alive, this elegantly-conceived show lends quantum physics and the uncertainty principle fresh meaning and a human face.
