"These stories serve as prompts that draw out their movements and emotions. I hope that, in this production, through the lighting and visual effects, they will resonate with the audience and they will discover in the dance feelings that correspond to those of their own," Cheng says.

The dancers were also actively involved in the stage design process, as the projection designer Chou Tung-yen invited them to express their emotions and feelings through drawing on pieces of paper.

During this creative exercise, they were encouraged to approach drawing with a clear mindset, without paying attention to the subject of their drawings.

Some dancers depicted trees or clouds, while some simply drew a single line on the paper. The designers then helped to transform these drawings, adding motion to them or selecting partial elements from within.
