What happens when a dancer who resonates with the common underground root unearths her deep whims and fancies to wax lyrical through poetry and movement? Meditative, sensitive, and at times playful, Jialing delves into how being a potato can be a way of life. In each small roll forward, she celebrates her being—roots, shoots, the occasional nightshade bloom and more. In this short set, spoken word is set to movement and perhaps, you too can have a hand in shaping how this kentang becomes fries.
