Where’s the Rub?

New Age Spa or Dr. Frankenstein’s Laboratory?
In WHERE’S THE RUB? Choreographer Mei-Yin Ng and Media Artist Eric Koziol dissect and incongruously reconfigure a traditional Chinese Qi-Gong Massage Parlor and it’s denizens. Concept of beauty, health and healing touch are distorted through body image, fractured sound, and real-time bio-mechanical vision.
