U-Theatre

Pitched gongs, thunderous taiko drums, nomadic chanting, and enlightened laughter score this multi-dimensional foray into temporal transcendence from Taiwan’s U-Theatre. Skirting material limits, bodies whirl with a controlled yet ineffable precision that combines martial arts mudras, contemporary dance, and Gurdjieffian movement practice, while projections render rainfalls, eclipses, and full moons in shimmering blue light. Redoubled by mirrored flooring, the incomparable ensemble subverts the tyranny of time in this ceremonious, percussive vortex where void and substance, human and universe, mastery and wonder lead to sensuous spiritual awakening.

Directed by Liu Ruo-yu
Composed and choreographed by Huang Chih-chun
Set and lighting design by Lin Keh-hua
Costume design by Tim Yip
Video design by Hsu Yi-chun
