As the fifth new works of Xiexin Dance Theater, it is based on the body and with the clue of dramas and environmental properties in order to explore hidden meaning of the actions and superficial expressions of the intentions. Then, it will be the exploration to search the spiritual peak of human beings.
After dealing with independent creation in Xiexin Dance Theater for three years, as a choreographer, I hope the body doesn’t simply mean the actions and dances but the creation of difference strengths and qualities in the actions and the creation of time-relationship-language-person. In the creation based on the body, the imagination comes first. The actions of dance are actually very important but the subtexts in the actions and expressions of superficial intention are more attractive. After focusing on the extremely simple stages and pure exploration of physical actions, the creation will try new trends completely. Based on the body, with the exploration of drama and environmental properties, it seeks the exploration of humans’ spiritual height. The dramatic feeling of the dancer’s body and the context created by stage properties will restrict and develop the body’s different possibilities. As they integrate into each other completely, it will make the mixed creation possible. The “obsessed” object-human-something hidden-something crazy will be covered in different layers of the stage. The integrated cross-body works is not the inflexible montage. Just like the dance and drama, the body and language are considered as a whole. The expression of mutual integration will be the future development of stage art.-----Xie Xin
Prejudice- from some ideas, it is prejudice with no doubt; Fantasy-go with the fantasy, get lost and be clustered with illusion. Persist in something-persist in love-persist in something hidden-persist in madness. Persistence is like a volcano and the great telekinesis like magma will be covered in the quietness and become crazy at the eruption of volcano. Some great artists like Yayoi Kusama, Van Gogh, Alexander McQueen and Egon Schiele are the examples of persistence. The creation of illusion may be from spiritual co-existence among greatness, prejudice, fragility and blurriness. The persistence is something beautiful, mysterious and dangerous. In addition, it is untouchable but it easily gets hooked. It has extreme black-and-white simplicity as well as numerous colorful layers. Like a kaleidoscope without bottom, it makes people hallucinated and then, the spiritual haunting covers the whole life. There are ceaseless dialogues and collisions between controllable thinking and the control of objective world, which lead to great psychological struggles and imbalances. It is the life of some group of people, who live in two different worlds. In the meantime, the quiet and shining daytime fire bursts out.
