About  關於

After a long time to practice Qi Gong and Tai Chi, in Buddha Tianman, Shou-Yuo Liu attempt to express the inner feelings by the oriented delicate body. There is no word, only a thong and a red cloth in the prime space, as well as purely physical movements, expect to make people feel the energy and tension released by the performers, but also to find a new attempt for the dance theater.

經過長時間修習氣功和太極拳,在《菩薩天蠻》裡,劉守曜企圖以東方細膩的肢體,表現豐富的內心情感。沒有一句話,只有一條丁字褲和一塊紅布的素淨空間,以及純粹的肢體動作,期望能讓人感受表演者身上釋放出來的能量和張力,也為舞蹈劇場尋找新嚐試。(摘錄自首演節目單)


Director’s Notes  導演的話

In these years, I’ve been doing physical training in Utheater, feeling the changes of my body. When I re-examined myself, I got a strong feeling to express myself by physical movements. As a Taiwanese young man, facing the outer impact of western thoughts and internal authority of the cultural oppression, there is no way to escape and only blindly obey. How could I breakthrough from the situation mentally and physically? The process of fighting my soul, as the creation of this dance motive and starting point.

這些年在優劇場的身體訓練中,有感於身體功能的變化,及對思想模式的重新檢討,而有了以身體表現的衝動。以一個現代台灣青年面對外來思潮的衝擊和內部威權文化的壓迫,因沒有機會跳脫而陷於盲從;思想與行為因陷於盲從而不自知。有感於此,所以將如何從這種處境中突破的心靈交戰過程,來做為創作此舞劇的動機及出發點。 (摘錄自首演節目單)
