Fragment is a testimony to James’ depth and vision as a choreographer. It is a beautiful piece highlighting the complex struggle between a fragmented soul and a complete outer body, balancing between illusion and reality. It is a journey of self-discovery to find the true and yet broken self. For this performance, he merges dance and multimedia to tell his story.
