Contrast is the theme of this piece of art. This can be demonstrated through the distance between the two dancers and the light that shines upon them. I used to perform every year in my dance company when I was young. Though I still hold ballet very close to my heart, intangible factors have separated us from uniting. Another message that I wanted to share with the audience is a societal phenomenon that I observe and experience–it doesn’t matter how much effort and time we put in, the outcome may not necessarily result in what we expected it to be. Similar to the competition between dancers, gamers, athletes, and scholars, the reality often disappoints people. However, I believe that as long as we try our best and thoroughly enjoy the process, the outcome does not matter anymore.
