"ABYSS" is an elegy expressing the sorrow of human emotions, consisting of joy, anger, sorrow, and pleasure, presented through dance as if it were a song. The choreographer was inspired to create this piece after seeing so many contemporaries who cannot escape from a feeling of emptiness amidst material wealth, making her envision life as a sailing boat floating alone on the open sea.
