perspective is (past/present/future) tense: screendance work by Li Chiao-Ping

Four dancers, whose rainbow-colored costumes are in tune with the art installation surrounding them, have turned MMoCA’s glass icon into their stage. The performance created by Li Chiao-Ping Dance revolves around Mask (2008), the floor-to-ceiling multicolored ribbons draping the Museum’s lobby windows, by Miami-based artists and architects Roberto Behar and Rosario Marquardt.
