Some events are currently ongoing…( quelque chose suit son cours…)

As a choreographer with a background in plastic art, my focus has always been to link movements with space and to identify movement–space possibilities regardless of whether these possibilities are narrative and/or abstract-based. Therefore, to me, dances themselves are as important as the creation of choreography. Objects, symbols, and clothing are the changing or unchanging “connectors” joining bodies and bodies as well as bodies and surrounding space together.

Movement thus becomes an item shared in the physical space, where living entities become one with inanimate objects and engage in a series of shrinking and expanding-oriented interaction with space. Space is like writing, in which it provides a realm for the creation of choreography.

This exhibition provides me an opportunity to leave theaters behind me and enter the world of museums, where I am given a platform to showcase performing arts that I have created over the past 15 years. For this exhibition, I was required to find a form of presentation that enables my performing arts to be exhibited and/or viewed as stage performances, where I share my personal stories with the audience.
