A PIECE OF CAKE

Yen-Cheng Liu

Like a dream, life is at times realistic; at times illusory.

In his new piece, Yen-Cheng LIU intends to rearrange time and challenge perceptions by creating an open space for the audience’s free roaming. A woman and a man bustle around the audience, manipulating objects and body vocabulary excavated from daily life. Amid humorous gestures and serious steps, they gently touch on the obscure weight and invisible dismal of life.

It’ll be an hour of intimate experience in a space where the barrier between audience and performers is erased. In between performed and instinctual expressions, between the real and the virtual, it is a process of making dream.

Premiere: Dec. 19, 2019 at Song Yan Creative Lab., Taipei, Taiwan

Rikey Cheng, Award Nominator:

A wonderful use of props, wooden pallets and live video feed…… By continuously segmenting the space, not only did he create multiple movement routes spread over the venue, but also a metaphor, characterizing the diversity of perspectives and nuances of choreography…… It’s a dance piece approachable to the general public, while remaining true to its original intention to experiment.
