Mimosa pudica are timid flowers. Their leaves fold inward and droop when touched or shaken, as if they were defending themselves from harm. This “identity” refers to their physical mechanism, an impulsive gesture that tries to protect them from others. Striking for their contradictory nature these flowers at once attract and reject those who approach them.

Known for his choreographed atmospheric installations, for this show at Last Tango Trevor Yeung has decided to interpret the flower’s psychological paradox and to discuss the often unspoken rules that dictate the dynamics and world of relationships. The blurred boundaries of relationships, sometimes being both private and social, come to form hidden frustrations and also involve gratifications of intimacy. That longing for and fear of interaction.
