“Pace” is a contemporary dance work choreographed by Israeli dancer Aviv Grinfeld. The show is divided into the first half of duet dance Whistle and the second half solo Pendulum. “Whistle” is presented by two dancers. It uses a childhood memory to lead us through the past. “Pendulum” is Aviv’s solo dance. A pendulum swings to the left and right and repeats itself continuously. German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer said: “Life swings like a pendulum backward and forward between pain and boredom.” Life is such a dilemma that we struggle to accept the truth and hopefully will find inner peace.

ACT 1. Whistle
Wake up from your present into a timeless dream. open a door into a collection of colorful childhood memories who leave an eternal imprint of nostalgic longing. We are often thrown back to a long forgotten moment by a smell, a sight or a distant familiar sound. This is a story about transforming from a childish perspective of right and wrong, Fair and unfair, black and white, into an adult, constantly processing a complex system of choices. How are we affected by our memories? How deep is our connection to our past? Would you want to go back to a specific moment in time? Welcome to our world.

ACT 2.Pendulum
We all have different ways of dealing with our own internal demons, those are being reflected to us from our surroundings and affect our interaction with the world around us.A conflict that is always present but not necessarily visible to others, dictates our movement and defines who we are. It's about the struggle to accept and the desire to be free.

"Imagine a place where you are someone else, Someone you do not know. That you will not even recognize in the future. The change will become who you are, what you will be."

Frequently Asked Questions
  • Can I choose a specific seat?

    Unfortunately, no. Ticketing systems in China vary from venue to venue, and many are not advanced enough to offer specific seat selection. The event promoters and venues that we work with currently have no systems in place that allow third party ticketing agents to access their respective floors plans. However, whenever you buy a ticket from us, you will automatically receive the best available seats within the category you've selected. Sometime the tickets price categories' name won't be matched on the actually physical tickets. But the value will be the same you choose.

    We have a couple of payment options available; 1. Online Payment: We now support WeChat and Alipay for online purchases. Simply scan the QR the payment page directs you to. 2.

  • Can I pay online with a credit card?

    Unfortunately, no. We've been working to implement an online payment system, which should be available soon! The nature of risk management and licensing issues with online payments made within China makes it a particularly delicate process.

  • If I lose my ticket, can I get a replacement?

    Unfortunately, all physical tickets are not replaceable. The concert venues have fixed seat numbers, and to avoid conflicts caused by duplicate tickets with the same seats, ticketing agencies and promoters are not permitted to print tickets twice.
