Gesang Dance Theater / I-Fan,Wu
★ 首演 Premiere
When a loved one leaves the world, the things she leaves behind begin to have irreplaceable meaning. For those who will use it later, it is not just an object, but an extension of life memory and emotion.
If I can decide what kind of people I can give my important things to while I'm alive, isn't it that I'll cherish the time I use things more?
During the days when she was with her grandmother in the hospital , she still paid so much attention to her clothing and manners. For her, it was a manifestation of her attitude towards life. I always accompany my grandmother, how I hope she can do what she loves as freely as she did when she was not sick, and recover to a relaxed, active and healthy body. The experience of accompanying her in the days of taking care of her was like an intimate dance, but it was only at the end of her life that I became so closely connected.
Looking at the beautiful clothes she left behind, did grandma ever wear them and live the life she liked?
I took these clothes and put them on, and I became another me, or am I no longer just me, but me with my grandmother?
