Like an Olive tree

 

World Premier: Dance ForumTaipei, 4th of November, 2010
Novel Hall, Taipei, Taiwan

Synopsis:

“…I was one of those that never went anywhere without a thermometer, a hot water bag, umbrella and a parachute,
If I could live again I would begin to walk barefoot in the early spring and remain so until the end of autumn.
And play with more children, if I would have another life ahead.
but you see, I am 85 years and I know I’m dying.”
Jorge Luis Borges

Press quote:

…Like an Olive Tree is a lyrical narrative dance piece which is rarely seen these days. Simple plots, delicate body movements, imaginative space transformation, precise and exquisite vocal sounds, all make this life story alive vividly. Who says it’s falling behind to tell a story by dance?… United Daily News, Taipei December 2010.
