Bianca Zaragoza of the Dance Program of DLS-CSB School of Design and Arts features “MONO”, a contemporary dance thesis production that zooms in on the thin line between conformity and individuality, to be staged on March 15, 7 pm and March 16, 1 pm and 7 pm at the 6/F Black Box SDA Campus.
“MONO” focuses on the innate human need to fit in. It highlights how the strive for social acceptance hinders most of us from weaving our own perspectives and from showing our distinctive qualities to favor societal ideals. The director’s contemplation toward societal expectations were exemplified through dance movements to create a statement on how such standards impedes us, at some point, from pursuing what we want and expressing who we really are. The production aims to acknowledge one’s uniqueness and chance to create a mark despite of the existing conformity around us.
