Individual Dance Items

Item #1

  • Title:Perfect Idea
  • Item Synopsis / Program Notes:

    Human beings express themselves with their own thoughts plus ego when thinking, talking and acting in relation to an ordinary process. Each of these natural inherent attribute changes depending on a situation. Every action is moved or changed due to a situation at that moment and recognized as the change of a sensitive situation. The communicator does not have to believe that an idea which is associated with the behavior must be an inherent idea. Therefore, “Perfect Idea” is solely at the discretion of an individual on how they perceive it.

Item #2

  • Item Synopsis / Program Notes:

    A dance-like cell division conveys a process in which things that were originally similar become divided and transformed into either something simple or complex: the different culture are perceived by each individual, and they affect each other, creating something new and unique.

Item #4

  • Title:Tschüss!! Bunny
  • Item Synopsis / Program Notes:

    The meaning of “Tschüss!! Bunny” in German is “Goodbye!! Rabbit.” which has the homophonic meaning in Chinese as “You go to hell!!”, bringing the essence of the piece- “Saying goodbye to old-self  and welcoming the new.” But who are we saying goodbye to? What does the rabbit represent? This is only a state of consciousness.
