Liederzyklus

This work is coproduced by SIDance, Cloud Gate Theater and National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts (Weiwuying), also sponsored by The National Culture and Arts Foundation (NCAF). In classical music, the German term Liederzyklus refers to a series of songs that are designed to be performed in a sequence which forms a story. Based on this idea, Liederzyklus consists of three artists who initiate conversations with their musical instruments and their bodies. They reflect both the moment and the eternity of music and dance through addressing the delicate lights of lives. They are like the members of a chamber music who all begin performing at the same starting point and speed but then improvise within a rehearsed construction and limited form.
