Virtual Lotus is a tailor-made work for the three dancers of the group with a theme relating to living in Macao.  Choreographer Ergao utilizes the concept and symbol of Lotus, the city flower of Macao, to look at today’s society under the impact of virtual reality on how our body connects with this symbolic lotus.  Would it be as a flowy cloud or would it be full of dotted noises?
