China Taiwan Net, Hangzhou, December 1st At 7:30 pm, November 30th, the second game of "The Exchange of Cloud Gate Dance Collection and Taoshen Theater" was staged at the Hangzhou Grand Theater as scheduled, and there were no seats on the scene. As the curtain opened and the dancers appeared, the Cloud Gate dancers exchanged with the Tao body dancers, and a shocking visual feast was presented to the audience. The end of a dance was endless applause.
"Exchange Works" is the last work planned by Lin Huaimin before his retirement. He will step down as the artistic director of Cloud Gate Dance Collection on December 31 this year. This work was performed by two super dance groups from Taiwan's "Cloud Gate Dance Collection" and the mainland "Tao Body Theater". The entire performance consisted of three works, "Multiplication" compiled by Tao Zonglong, the successor of Cloud Gate Dance, for Tao body dancers, "12" edited by Tao Body art director Tao Ye for Cloud Gate dancers, and Lin Huaimin as Cloud Gate. "Autumn Water" by senior dancers.
"Exchange Works" was inspired by a long talk between two young choreographers in Tamsui, Taiwan. Zheng Zonglong said, "After meeting with Tao Ye, I smoked 7 cigarettes in the morning as usual. We talked for a long time and met each other late, and Tao Ye said that it would be better for you to make a dance for our Tao Body Theater. I said, Then you can also compile one for Yunmen Dance Collection. "This is the" Exchange Work ". This bold proposal has also been endorsed and appreciated by Lin Huaimin, so much so that he still "joins it."
The "Autumn Water" created by Lin Huaimin in 2015 is the inherent "bridge" of this special and mysterious work. Lin Huaimin said that the autumnal stream in Kyoto gave him instant inspiration. He said, "I saw the water flowing quietly in autumn, with red leaves floating on it, and I thought I was going to compose this dance, called" Autumn Water "The five most senior dancers from Cloud Gate come to dance, and after this dance, some of them will leave the stage of Cloud Gate forever." Therefore, Lin Huaimin transformed the realm of "the sunset is infinite" For the quiet dance of meditation, not only the elders' mention of backwardness, but also the new atmosphere of Chinese modern dance art.
Tao Ye's works have always been named after serial numbers. The legendary development of the Tao Body Theater has been accompanied by the continuous extension and expansion of the "Digital" series. In the hot summer of August, Tao Ye went to the Cloud Gate Theater in Tamsui to work with Cloud Gate dancers. During this period, he constantly asked and explored, reconstructed the body within the body, and deconstructed the movement during the movement, which resulted in the work "12". Although this is the number of Cloud Gate dancers working with Taoye, it is inspired by the fast-moving colorful clouds seen in the Swedish mountains. Tao Ye challenged the Cloud Gate dancers with various actions, calling for the flowing clouds in memory.
Zheng Zonglong, who will soon take over as the artistic director of the Cloud Gate Dance Collection from 2020, his works are not only the "viewing way" of the eyes, but can be listened with the ears, can be hand-dancing, and full-hearted. Put in. This time, Zheng Zonglong's new "Multiplication" for Tao body dancers is exactly trying to establish a "multiplication" mode, transforming his own movement methods into blood nutrients, injecting into the body of Tao body dancers, creating Birth of colorful works.
At the end of this year, Lin Huaimin will retire from the Cloud Gate Dance Collection he has been in charge of for 46 years. The "Swap Works" became the last work he planned for the Cloud Gate Dance Collection, which has a meaning of inheritance and transfer.
Speaking of the upcoming handover to young people, Lin Huaimin said that their generation grew up with the Internet, and the audience in the audience also grew up with the Internet. They spoke speculatively, "I am very happy that there will be new The appearance of my face. The significance of my retirement should be that young people have more opportunities. " (Finish)
