About· Activity

The study and work of modern society often stress preciseness and preciseness, but the development of creativity needs to jump out of the box. The balance between rationality and sensibility constantly appears in my work of creation, teaching and research. I found that my long-term exploration and care for my body, as well as my thinking and experiment on improvisation art, have become a kind of hidden nourishment, constantly feeding back to my work and life. In this workshop, I hope to share these experiences with you. With a series of exercises, the workshop will lead participants to pay attention to the various relationships and interactions between self and other (including the environment), and then detect and create various tiny sparks in the process of dancing together and dancing alone. Finally, we can see some theater works combining visual, acoustic design and dance for discussion. Participants are not required to have dance or other physical training experience. Let perception be open, we pursue the freedom of body and mind.
