Thanatophobia is a Natural Human Condition

Thanatophobia is defined as an intense fear of death or dying. As suggested by its title this dance piece is a reflection of death and the cycle it can play in our mind. Wanting to show a different approach than dark and scary, choreographer Tyler Luong instead wished to express the beauty, confusion, and acceptance through color and texture. A big theme were roses. The colors of red and green were a must, but I also wanted to bring in the texture of roses and create a look that could both be soft and harsh depending on the lighting.
