For the first time under this platform, LASALLE College of the Arts presents a full-length production, and commissions choreographers Christina Chan and Aymeric Sylvian Bichon to showcase the senior students from LASALLE BA(Hons) Dance and Diploma in Dance Programmes.

Created in collaboration with lighting designer Gabriel Chan, Iris aims to bring to light the possibility of choice through an exploration of alternate perspectives, worlds and states, collective consciousness, imagination, creation and consequence.
