【About the program】

Track, the track of color and line, is the hue and track of life. The work explores human being’s eagerness and ponder, panic and forward, dependence and independence, persevering pursuit and enlightenment of life. It shows the rich inner world through visual, dramatic language, and abstract body movements. The core of the work is an anti-pure expression within a fictitious pure space. Delirious temperament and mental visual symptoms, the sensual, rational, aesthetic, confused feelings are intertwined, forming a strong visual impression to bring modern people profound reflection and internal impact on the endless desires. Through video, stage set and body language, Track tries to explore the intricacies between individual and society, needs and gains, desire of expansion and illusion in reality, and layers of perception and complex response to the thousands of colors in the power of life.
