The vitality from ancient times, a light booming in the dark
Ferns have appeared on the earth as early as 400 million years ago. They are the most primitive group of vascular plants. They can also grow and bloom in a humid and harsh environment. Under the difficult international situation and political environment, Taiwan still tenaciously conveys the value of democracy and freedom Taiwan is well known as “Kingdom of Ferns”, with more than 650 different types of ferns, 60 of which are endemic, and more than 200 rare. Unique culture and art have been nurtured in such a place with outstanding people. I believe it can bring contemporary Butoh even more different vision and excitement.
Solo performance as Taiwanese artist Hu Chia. In his works, the performer combines the art of calligraphy and the body aesthetics of contemporary Butoh, synchronizing the deep Zen spirit through the interdisciplinarity of visual operations and performing arts. In this way, he connects the restrained and gentle spirit of traditional Taiwanese Kung Fu called "Monkey and Crane Double Form Chuan" with artistic space composed of people and environments.
