GENG ─ 2017 New Choreographer Project（Taiwan）
Duration: 22 min
Choreographer & Performer：LIU I-Ling
Geng is time, experience, change and comparative……The choices made in the face of the tests in life may have different ideas afterwards.So if you encounter similar situations again, you would adjust ways and mentalities, this is growth. “Geng” is made by this thought, trying to challenge people’s definition of “good”,and presenting the emotions of those moments faithfully.
In the works, light plays a mysterious and challenged role from the beginning to end.Performers seek to survive between light and dark.Whether it’s a calm and repeating mono, or silent or lyrical gentle songs, music becomes an extremely important channel for emotional expression in the works.For example, Liu Wei’s first attempt to lyricize It's Not About You, with hip hop rap, is a vent at the time of the test. The Japanese sword-drawing technique iaido of 12 moves is the main action source of the whole solo dance.With the total length of 22 minutes, the works change actions with a set of 2 minutes’ movement.In the repeating path and contrasting environment between upper and lower stage edges, the works create the states of different characters.

A Sense of Perspective is a duet of aerial strap artist Tarek Rammo and dancer Francesco Barba. An encounter between ground and air that resembles a memory, sometimes fleeting at other times intense. The use of the aerial straps makes the experience of time almost tangible. A smooth time that accelerates and slows down the movements and draws you into the story of these two men looking back on their friendship.
For several minutes he hangs on one arm, circling, almost floating, he seems to overcome gravity. He stretches towards the ground and softly lands on the shoulders of his opponent. A Sense of Perspective is a duet of aerial strap artist Tarek Rammo and dancer Francesco Barba.
