Everyone is beautiful yet sad, sociable yet lonely. Sometimes life drags us down, and more often than not, we have a helping hand to pull us up. These hands could be anything, a person, a thing, or even an idea or courage. Years later, we would still talk about our own clumsiness and tension, looking back at the wounds and laughter.. As the French saying goes, “C’est la vie! The Sun Rises As Usual Max Dance Hall | Macau Choreography/Performer: Lou Hio Mei This is the era that we cannot stop. Our innovation is weak; we have no strong belief. What is this era? What was the past era? Where is our era? And if we do not have the sun in our hearts, where should we go?
