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