BJ4, the pronunciation resembles “no need to explain” in mandarin also a unique catchphrase in the network generation that I belong. This play is inspired by the spirit of America hip-hop culture, and it’s like a creative dance of two. “B”,”J”,”4”, each has a symbol and metaphor in this play, and it also means that when a performance happen, the communication between the performer and the audience is beyond words, no need to explain. Here I can only say, “Take a look, “BJ4.”
Being an human is same as being a product. We’re all different and each of us has our own labels, like a code of ourselves. We’ll know each person by overlapping, repeating and reorganizing each other’s code. But you can never predict the consequence.

<Con Saball> "Con" comes from Latin and meaning "with" in English, and "Saball" is a combination of Salsa and Ballroom dance. As the name implies, it is a performance of international ballroom dance mingled Salsa dance. The work tries to take a contemporary mind to communicate with the body elements of social dance, to expand a journey of physical exploration. Like peeling onions, look for the precious and beautiful "heart zone" in layers. And take a closer look at the connection and taste slight changes between “take and send” in our hands.
Death Mirror Chant
Wandering into the death mirror, life will become more brave? Or less consider ?or more unscrupulous? or close ? or more honest? or hidden with the most weakness and helpless of the one that cannot being more naked? Surrounding by the neon lamb and incense smoke at Wanhua district and Longshan Temple, peels from the wall corner reflects the twisted shadow of a hanging white face with her high heels in a silent night.
Life Holds No More
Like an aged machine will be shut down because of derogative component. As a human, we may also breakdown because of long-term torture. Would a human’s life be changed, if we could see the process?
I feel that life is like a combination of fragments, and the materials that construct these fragments are memory, memory of the mind, memory of the body, and inertia, all of which are the driving forces for me to continue. Under the understanding of most people, ash is a fuzzy area between black and white; for me it is used to describe the best color of life.
I know that nothing is what I know.
Welcome to join, then give me your time. I know that nothing is what I know. Those who live, move, breathe, touch, watch, listen, decide a moment that belongs to us, and also become a guest of each other.
In The Moment
Two people, a violin, both dancers and musicians, inspired by in the moment.
Let’s leave this moment and create some meanings right away. This is a temporary sum-up of the passing PiTA Production. We believe that there’s still some new meanings created when we start to look back of ourselves.

Once Upon a Time on the Bridge
Once upon a time, there were princesses and a princes encountering each other on the bridege. They had to overcome several trials such as escaping from a tower, breaking the cold glass coffin, leaving a shoe, growing the white wings. After all, they expected to break the curse by a true love kiss……
We are all a group of people who live on this circle, running every day without sleep, until the day we die.
We be on the new page, we be skipping over it.
This piece explores whether stress would hinder us or prompt us to move forward. I often wonder about the different kinds of pressure humans face in life and how we explain or deal with them. We may not necessarily know what others are going through, but we can always put ourselves into their shoes and at the same time, put things into perspective. Pressure is invisible, but yet it is an undeniable force that drives us forward or pushes us backward.
She and Her Dreams of All Hues
Tangled up in thoughts and emotions that are hard to express, alone at night, she comforts herself with gentle touch and sinks into her dreams. Between the waking state and sleep, she dives into the fantastic and intimate time-space where she encounters her trauma, desire, fear and fantasy by chance. The dream is a “real” time-space interwoven with memories, where the body enters the circuit of multiple time-space, surrounded by multiple worlds. The memory has no ideal final form to achieve. Instead of being attached to a certain timeline, it is spreading towards unlimited diversities. The real time-space of dreams interweaves, transforms and montages memories, and disappears like the fog drifting away with the rising sun.
We criticize and reconstruct our living space by the concept of “heterotopia”, and eliminate any original intention and value, and then redefine the space. How do we imagine, recognize and feel the space and city in our lives?
