Reaction

「作品側重探討男女間「相愛而不得」的微妙關係,結尾處兩人漸行漸遠的背影或暗含了羅蘭‧巴特書中揮散不去的悲傷意味,稱得上點睛之筆。」—— 李米/舞蹈手扎


Choreographer's Note
Everyone hopes to live in an emotionally fulfilling world, but the reason love has been a timeless topic, is because of the complex relationships that develop in love. Love is sometimes concrete, sometimes vague. Those who want it can’t get it; it makes people unable to move, unable to speak; it even makes some people go crazy. French writer Roland Barthes describes in his A Lover’s Discourse the dramatics of this state of mind as "reactions".
In Reaction, there is no such thing as perfection, just a moment of forever, and ever-changing feelings that make people unpredictable. On one hand, she lives in her own ideal world, slowly veering off the tracks of reality. On the other hand he lives in reality, trying hard but failing to figure out her impossible inner universe. They seem so close, but so far, as though they are speaking different languages, neither able to communicate nor coordinate between them. Those who hold onto the concept of perfection and forever will simply end up in loneliness, because they have placed all happiness on a being they have idealised.
This collaboration has been smooth and harmonious between all units, including dancers, composer, lighting, stage design, etc. I would like to thank the Arts Festival for giving us choreographers a platform to express our creativity, and allowing young dancers to experience the creative journey. In this process, we all learned from and inspired each other, and uncovered the unlimited possibilities of creativity!
