Love, it's Happening
Double & Cross Theater Group
Please forgive me if I wasted your time.
Man and woman, female and male, we question our own bodies from the intimate relationships we have been went through. Who are you? Who is the one you love? How to re-identify ourselves through various loves? The body will be a new existence of experiencing and presenting.

If sexual desire is the instinct and spiritual needs of human beings, is it still the sin that people can easily generalize moral culture?
And when the desire for sex goes to extremes, causing disease, moral decay, physical and spiritual destruction, does it turn into our torture tool?
Under desire, where is the sentence from sin and not sin?
Experiment of Soul
In the era of the epidemic, our relatives or friends who live close to each other have less chance to meet in this age of COVID-19. Time gradually weakens the relationship between each other and creates a gap between people. There is little contact between each other, and the distance between each other’s hearts is gradually increased, and even doubts, or is this just an illusion? Perhaps in the eyes of bystanders, this is an experiment, and we are just their guinea pigs for peeking into their hearts.
In this work, I hope to make Leap exist not only in the action, but also to focus on the bounce between each person's relationship. This is both a flow and a network of relationships between people during the epidemic.
Foolish Dark Light- Memory Erasing Soup
Emotional Machine/Yuxin Guo
Gradually growing up, the death of my relatives made me encounter the tradition of Taiwanese funeral rituals, which is like a busy dream for the living. What about the deceased?
Reincarnation seems to be a process of life tossing and leaping forward, but before sublimation, who can decisively let go of all the thoughts of decades before death?
With the choreography of modern dance, I walked into Taiwan's folklore and etiquette tradition, and talked about a lonely and hesitating thought...
GATHER - Li, Chih-Yin & Chang, Yen
The covid widens the distance between the tangible and the intangible and also destroys the beauty, goodness, and innocence of people.
When stepping into this space and meeting us, let us use our innate temperature to find the most familiar human touch~
Gather & Scatter
Hsiang Yu Chan
Every seemingly chance encounter is the start of an inevitable story. When each story comes to an end, we are left with feelings that linger in our bodies and memories. In this performance created with a contemporary ballet vocabulary, performers use their bodies to illustrate the feelings behind the meetings and partings in life, listening to one another's breathing in every moment of coexistence and harmony.

Body Move Bowl
Bowl Bowl Move
Bowl~ Move~ Bowl~ Move~
We talk and communicate beyond language.
Trying to connect the body, sound and vibration.
Toning the body and mind in the presence.
Both of us follow the feeling of the body in the moment.
Communicating by singing bowls and dancing.
Yunchen Chang / Chelsea M Davis
When surfaces sweep away, what emerges? Upwelling, the process of bringing up the ocean’s deep water, is akin to the process of art through which order forms out of the complexities of life. This dance strives to explore if order emerges from chaos, life breaks out from its shell, if the darkest depths can be the greatest teachers of the beauty of light?
“The waters closed over me to take my life;
I went down to the land
whose bars closed upon me forever;
yet you brought up my life from the pit,
O LORD my God.” -Jonah 2:5-6

Margarita Tseng X Afra Lin
Human being got lost in the moment when they are born.
Searching the lost self in the dark.
Allowing to lower down a ladder within yourself.
Deepening to the bottom.
Awakening various layers of the sleeping memory of the cell.
The body become the vessel,
Connecting visible and invisible world.

Sun and moon, stillness and movement, male and female, spirit and form. Yin and Yang generally refer to all the two opposite and interrelated aspects of nature. Yin and Yang are the foundation of the relationship between the universe , human beings , gender, society and life.
“We are forced into this human factory from the moment we are born.”
Modern humans grow up under the eyes of society, its words moulding us into unconsciously becoming the society’s definition of a “successful person”. And so we grow up into “adults”. Into “humans”.
Red is the color that “humans” hide away, starting from the moment they are born.
Ching-Yi, Hsing、Ya-Lan, Hsing
The Iceberg Theory of Virginia Satir, divided human’s inside and outside into two parts-above the water line and under the water line. Which above the water line is call behavior, under the water line there are coping, feelings, feelings about feelings, perceptions, expectations, yearnings and self. Stagger the under parts from self in the lecture hall, they build up to a coping stance and show the behavior.
Wang Yu Ling
The posture of mythical beasts is like being proud of the development of human science and technology, the plague is like a cold winter that freezes the world, the sorrow and anger of the beasts cry for the earth, the loneliness after breathing is ushered in the recovery of all things, and the washing of the feminine phase merged with the energy of nature turns into a miracle. Horn, where does the warm dawn wake up?
LU SHAO KO - Encyclo Production Group
Sit down and have a cup of coffee in a coffee shop, and see different people around you: some are chatting happily with friends, some are sulking by themselves, and some are doing their own things busily alone in the corners. All of these seem familiar to me. I am just like those people. Now where are my emotions ? Have they been hidden in the endless deep ditch of my mind ? Can I still find out what I have lost?
Because of you
Love, the most complicated and abstract thing in the world, acting as the most important role between everyone we care about. I love you . Everything I did for you is because I love you, but at the same time, do the one being loved by you feel exact the same way as you? "I could do anything for you.” , “Anything I did for you is for your own good.” … all these thoughts only came from one side’s fantasy and you caused enormous pressure towards the loved one unconsciously . The opposite of love is harm. There is just a fine line between love and harm.
