The Eternal Straight Line _

Chieh-Hua Hsieh X Anarchy Dance Theatre



How does one prepare so that s/he
may come to terms with the death of a loved one?



Death is like a lake, in which one always looks toward the bottom, imagining a place where the soul wanders. Death is also like a black hole guarding the end of time, reciting the equality of all life. If one day we traverse on the light of technology through the borderline of life and change the meaning and form of death, enabling your loved ones to take on a digital form and remain forever with you, would this be something you’d accept?

A collaboration between the multidisciplinary choreographer Chieh-Hua Hsieh, technological art studio Ultra Combos, and light design studio We Do Group, The Eternal Straight Line is their latest project after their 2015-piece Second Body, and for the first time also features the work of cloud designer Shu-Yu Lin in defying physical movement through the dance of smoke between warmth and consciousness. As story-telling dancers weave through lights, shadows and mist, holding weightless, formless smoke in the form of weighted emotions, all come together in a provoking discourse of life and death that gazes forward into the depths of the future.

永恆的直線 _

謝杰樺 X 安娜琪舞蹈劇場



一個人要做多少準備,才能面對至親的死亡?



死亡像一片湖,人總望向湖底,想像靈魂遊蕩的他方。死亡也像黑洞,守護時間的終點,唱誦眾生平等。倘若有一天,科技的光穿越生命邊界,改變死亡的定義與樣態,讓至愛的人能以數位的形式永留身旁,你,能接受嗎?

跨界編舞家 謝杰樺 聯手 科技藝術創作團隊「叁式」、燈光設計團隊「瓦豆」,繼 2015《Second Body》後最新力作。《永恆的直線》首度與 煙霧藝術家 林書瑜 聯手,挑戰物理動態,讓「煙」在溫度與意識間翩流起舞。帶著故事的舞者穿梭光影塵霧,攜手輕盈的煙,托起情感的重,共舞一曲直觀未來的生死思辨。

Anarchy Dance Theatre


Founded in 2010, Anarchy Dance Theatre uses contemporary dance theatre to express our concerns about people and life, by reproducing through movement the intricate power structures and personal relationships in today’s powerful social structures. Anarchy strives to create a dance training structure of its own, starting from awareness of the body, and reaching out to explore the relationships between time, space, objects and others, with the intention of increasing one’s own sensitivity.

安娜琪舞蹈劇場


成立於 2010 年,舞團名稱來自於 Anarchy 的音譯,以舞蹈劇場形式為創作核心,透過肢體再現當今強烈的社會結構中,微妙的權力結構與人際關係,表達對於人與生活的關心。安娜琪舞蹈劇場積極建構屬於自身舞蹈訓練結構,以肢體的覺察開始,逐漸探索與時間、空間、物體以及他人之間的關係,提升自我的敏感度。



Jeff Chieh-Hua Hsieh


Artistic director of Anarchy Dance Theatre. His works are composed of a special texture derived from his architecture background. In general, his works possess strong structural characteristics—a creative perspective dealing with time, space and energy together. Jeff’s distinguish works of choreography include Second Body (2015) and Seventh Sense (2011) that are mainly focusing on interactive dance performance. Those works has started to gain public attention, already being invited to several international festivals including Ars Electronica, TodaysArt Festival, George Town Festival and so on. Since 2015, he started to work with I-fen Tung to create a series of dance-installation “You Choreograph”, is trying to expand the expression form of dance beyond “performance”. He is also one of the director of opening ceremony of 2017 Summer Universiade.

謝杰樺|安娜琪舞蹈劇場藝術總監


謝杰樺在建築與舞蹈的雙重背景之下,其作品顯現獨特的創作思維。在他的作品中,獨特的空間概念以及鮮明的肢體風格成為其作品中最為人津津樂道的部份。著名的作品包括跨界科技作品《第七感官》(2011) 與《Second Body》(2015)。廣獲好評,曾獲奧地利林茲電子藝術節 (Arc Electronica)、荷蘭 TodaysArt 藝術節、馬來西亞喬治城藝術節 (George Town Festival) 等國際性指標藝術節邀請。2015 年起與編舞家董怡芬共同創作《日常編舞》舞蹈互動裝置系列作品,嘗試將舞蹈的展現形式延伸到『表演』以外。他也是 2017 台北世界大學運動會開幕典禮文化演出導演之一。
