The crane is a representative of Chinese traditional cultural aesthetics, refer to almost all traditional culture can be related to beauty, high, aloof, refined, and baked it in salt to the urn. Personal sorrow and joy is from different people and different views.

About time

Dance and life, is the art of time, no matter what shape the body will be held out, with the passage of time, will turn to dust. It is through the body to get anything apparently. It is so vain and ridiculous.

About limitations

Life is a limitation, or to be limited. The length of life is confined to the space and time, the width of life is limited to consciousness and growth experience, the possibility of life is more limited to culture and cultural background. Almost all that we may have, will be limited to the body. Work is limited as a breakthrough point, in the hustle and bustle of loneliness, panic and indifference, sensitive and powerless to comb our minds in this social background and its impact, and then explore the impact of the process, thinking, consciousness of self binding, self comfort and self liberation.
