Another dimension to see Body and the World

Over Here?   (10 mins, 2020)

在某一個城市,人如川,流不息。她說⋯⋯但,種種語匯欲言又止。

 

口罩,不,可以被接觸的。戴在眾人臉上。

 

穿過天橋,漂泊在那個世界的角落。她和他邁進瞬息萬變的夢境,在機場等待,看見時空湧動。

 

勺子接得住淚水嗎?逗留在脊椎上,反射光。

 

口風琴一次次地被吹響,海岸邊,浪花慢蕩。

 

什麼是「流」?什麼是「動」? 

 

In a city, people flow ceaselessly, like rivers. She says…but, stops short.

 

Masks. No, they are not untouchable. They are on your face, or in your face?

 

Across the overpass, drifting around the corners of the world, she and he step into a rapidly changing dream. They wait at the airport, seeing the surge of time and space.

 

Can the spoon catch the tears? It stays on the spine, reflecting light.

 

The melodica is played again and again. Spume move gently along the shore.

 

What is Flowing ? What is Moving?

Moon Paradox I   (10 mins, 2019)

A short-haired girl looks up to the depth of the universe, overlapped with the moonlight.

 

She thinks everyone have their own arguments to find the complete relationship.No matter where they stand or move towards the future, they will break through the plane's perspective.

 

The conflict of contradictions creates an agitated desire. On the slope, they are full of vitality to love the different states of the sphere.

 

Deliberately entering the world of another person (Vipassana), there is a condensed and unbalanced insight between two people.

 

We all know that the moon is three-dimensional, but is her insinuation flexible?

 

At this time, you ask me, who is in the incomplete second, who is consuming the dark red, or releasing the moist bright yellow?

 

 

短髮女孩仰望著宇宙的深處,與月光重疊了位置。

 

她想每個人都有自己的論點去盡情尋找完整的關係,不論站在哪裡或奔向未來,終將衝破平面的視角。

 

矛盾的碰撞產生了躁動的慾望。斜坡上,他們充滿生命力地愛著球不同的狀態。

 

刻意走進另一個人(內觀)的世界裡,才知道兩個人之間,產生的生命凝聚著/存在著緩慢不平衡的洞見。

 

我們都知道月球是立體的,但她的影射是有彈性的嗎?

 

這時,你卻問我,那不完整的一秒鐘裡是誰在消耗洩氣的暗紅色,或釋放濕潤的明黃色呢?

Director statement for the Moon Paradox I

 

ZZ has danced in 11 countries over the past 4 years.  Another Day on The Moon is a long-term dance art project, has been developing in Paris, Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh City, Hong Kong and continuing…

 

Dance is artistic and technical. The environment is physical and psychological. A sphere can be between people and the world, a small universe.

 

The streets of strange cities are dangerous spaces. Every stranger passing by enters and then withdraws from other’s world. What is the action of neurons in the short docking of sight? What kind of interpersonal relationship has been created? Is some kind of empathy condensed?

 

Another concrete example: she practiced on uneven land, outside the Paris Museum of Technology and Industry, which imposed restrictions on the human body. Land is not deliberate, it is people who are in it and create restrictions on themselves. The process takes place under the control of technology. There are countless variations in technology and nature, between people and the world. The time and space, from limited to infinite, extend beyond.

 

ZZ did not escape from fear. She calls herself a Flaneur. She seeks her relationship with the world in multiple identities. She is Zelia ZZ TAN from Mainland China, living in Hong Kong now, but also a citizen of the World. She keeps reflecting, practicing and articulating new issues of dance in particular and art in general, on a daily basis. Her quest continues…
