Dancing with Death

Dancing on the Edge Festival | Unwrapping Culture

七月 12, 2017 - 六月 22, 2017

Unwrapping Culture brings together two exceptional male dance artists: Canada’s own Alvin Erasga Tolentino, and Pichet Klunchun, an outstanding exponent of the Thai classical dance style of Khon, who is known internationally for contemporizing this ancient form. Their first collaboration combines the technique, theatricality and storytelling elements of Khon to create a devastating critique of the corruption of authentic Thai culture by the forces of commercialization, in a passionate and bitingly funny duet which immerses the audience in the conflict between traditional and modern.

Pichet Klunchun received an ACC Fellowship in 2000 to participate in the APPEX Program at UCLA. Pichet received the ACC's John D. Rockefeller 3rd Award in 2013 for his distinguished contribution to the international appreciation and understanding of Asian art and culture, particularly for his dedication to preserving the integrity and vitality of Thai classical dance.

克朗淳舞團 靈薄域

八月 26, 2017 - 八月 27, 2017

一場即興、自由、流動的演出 「靈薄域」是皮歇.克朗淳對生命最高的禮讚 
日本、新加坡、澳洲三國共同製作 台灣首演



皮歇.克朗淳 舞出傳統超越當代爆發力 
他拜傳統舞大師學藝十六年,扎下深厚傳統舞根基,成為泰國知名舞者,卻無法因此滿足,遠赴紐約學習當代舞,激發他創立泰國第一個當代舞團,充滿爆發力且源源不斷的身體動能,作品深受國際舞壇重視,各國邀演不斷,屢獲大獎肯定。 

《靈薄域》 日 星 澳 三國共製 雲門獨家台灣首演 
《靈薄域》來自英文Limbo一詞,描述未知的生死邊境。舞蹈題材取自泰國鬼節,舞者身穿彩衣,在金色環形舞台上迴旋奔走,歡慶生命輪迴,成了一場美麗豐盛的嘉年華。 

從泰國傳統舞發展出一個全新的肢體語言 
克朗淳說:「直覺」是貼近身體本能的舞蹈。他認為,不管在生活或工作中,每個人應該利用與生俱來的「直覺」,「直覺」讓人用心體驗生命,察覺生活中每一刻的感動。 
克朗淳也說:「思維」讓我們在傳統裡自由。當傳統舞的舞者不再只是跟隨老師一個口令做出一個動作,每一個姿勢都開始賦予了自己的想法,傳統與當代接軌,於是有了全新面貌,舞蹈活了起來!
