古名伸《沙度》+布拉瑞揚《阿棲睞》

May 14, 2016 - May 15, 2016

2016年1+1雙舞作邀請了台灣兩位充滿特色的編舞家,古名伸與布拉瑞揚。 

●古名伸●《沙度》Sadhu
■一個迷離夢境般的寓言故事,為了尋找現代人無盡焦慮的出口■
擅長接觸即興的古名伸帶來《沙度》,《沙度》期望能舉重若輕地談論現代人焦慮的議題,並在實際交手後找到可行的出口。舞蹈中從紅衣女孩的描述、「沙度」的形成、抗衡、變化、追逐、和解等,段落中有容易被理解的情節,卻又充滿舞蹈特有的詩意與想像空間。《沙度》看似一個童話故事,但卻蘊含深沈的寓意在其中。 

●布拉瑞揚‧帕格勒法●《阿棲睞》Qaciljay
■「我也可以說我是阿棲睞,時間在身體刻出不一樣的舞和歌」(阿棲睞,中文音譯,排灣語,石頭;指的是斜坡上的石頭。)■
布拉瑞揚舞團自創團作品《拉歌 La Song》開始,一直沉迷在舞者們唱歌亂跳的過程。如果我們一定要說話,是不是用唱的比說得更好聽更動人,如果我們一定要唱歌,是不是有了身體之後就更接近靈魂,有故事的人。「有聲音的身體」是布拉瑞揚目前努力想走的路,並試問為什麼我們要去山上走路、唱歌?我們會在歌的學習當中,讓身體走在山路上,歌緩緩進入身體,再回到作品中產生意義,才有機會認識自己,看見歷史,然後對應當下。

演出長度:上半場《沙度》約50分鐘,下半場《阿棲睞》約50分鐘,中場休息20分鐘。

Bulareyaung Dance Company’s Double Bill 《STAY THAT WAY》

October 7, 2017

Time to get drunk!
Don't be martyred slaves of Time, Get drunk! Stay drunk! On wine, virtue,
poetry, whatever!  – excerpted from the poem Get Drunk  by Charles Baudelaire.
 

This poem is the inspiration for Stay That Way by the Bulareyaung Dance Company. Its founder, Bulareyaung Pagarlava, is from the indigenous Paiwan tribe of Taiwan, and a well-known dancer and choreographer, who has worked with Cloud Gate Dance Theatre. In this production, he shares the beauty of indigenous ballads. Three singers perform traditional songs, complemented by the movements of dancers. This outdoor performance in the National Taichung Theater’s Sky Garden is not constrained by a stage, and, as Bulareyaung notes, that makes it purposely difficult to predict how it will unfold.
