This gem-like male-female Taiwanese duet puts some unexpected spins on the familiar twinned theme of love and loss.

The plasticity and musicality of the action are very concentrated, in the tradition of oriental poetry, like Haiku, in which the complex is compressed and synthesized, current and eternal, in the delicacy of the simple, the minimal.

All about Beings

 

Beings, is the first episode of choreographer WANG Yeu-Kwn’s project, “A Trilody - Quest of Relationships.” Taking inspiration from the Chinese character “ 人 ” (person), the dance piece focuses on exploring a new way of looking at the narrative on relationships, deconstructing and reconstructing those between the two supporting calligraphy strokes, between two intimately connected performers, and between rice paper and ink.

“Beings” takes inspiration from the Chinese character “人 ”(person)
The dance piece touches on the relationships between the two supporting calligraphy strokes

The twists and creases of the paper, born of each dance step, bear witness to every trace of the past. As the ink flows from the dancers' bodies, everything is transmuted into an unerasable record and proof.

Shimmering Production extends the audience experience to an exhibition experimenting on the variations of the papers from the dance, and workshops applying the movements of the work.

Bodies are like vessels drifting with the waves of the ocean;
perhaps we will only begin to understand each other as we left our islands.

All about Islands

 

Islands, is the second episode of “A Trilody - Quest of Relationships.” Inspired by choreographer WANG Yeu-Kwn’s 2019 trip to Indonesia in search of a giant fish— the self identify.

WANG invites his long time friend, Danang Pamungkas, an Indonesian dance artist who once worked in Taiwan, to go on this search together. They will conduct a dialogue by exploring the cultural heritage hidden in each other’s body and movements in search of “who I am (who we are)”. The work will premiere in fall 2024.
