每个人都会离开,但不会真正地离去,我们终将再次回来。——西藏谚语

Everyone will die, but we will not leave this world forever – the eternal promise of rebirth will bring us back. --- Tibetan Proverb

 

 

中国传统文化中对生命过程的理解,尤其对“轮回”和“万物有灵”的观念,使东方文化一直保持着一种神秘、隐逸和静寂的独特气质。

三更雨,是作者对“轮回”的理解和表达。因为“愿”未了,所以无法真正离开,“三更”是一个特殊的时刻,是夜与昼,黑与白,终与始的交替重合之时。一夜的雨,生命的五次轮回不过是其中的一个瞬间。

作品试图通过生活中最常见的,但在中国传统文化里有强烈象征意义的“花、鸟、鱼、虫、草”来表现内心理想与外部世界之间的矛盾与冲突,希冀在一次又一次的重生中寻找皮肤下的灵魂的真实。


 

Decoding the cycle of life, namely to understand reincarnation and animism, is one of the far-reaching element in the Chinese tradition, which is a key part to its characteristic mystery, quietness and seclusion.

Oath (Midnight Rain) explores the choreographer’s understanding of Buddhist Samsara, the cycle of death and rebirth and the liminal moment between night and day, between black and white, between ending and beginning.

 

Utilizing the personification of flower, bird, fish, insect, and grass, which are representative elements with far-reaching cultural meaning and profound symbolic significance in traditional Chinese culture, the choreographer seamlessly integrates traditional culture with contemporary aesthetics, to display the conflicts between inner idealism and the real outside world, as well as seeking the genuine existence hidden underneath the superfacial appearance, through endless reincarnations.
