He said the idea for a piece that allows each dancer to show his or her personality came when he was first working with the company, and it is a device he has gone on to use in other works. However, Bulareyaung admits that it is not something that most dancers feel comfortable doing.
“I hope that dancers can be seen, not just the choreographer, the choreography, that they can show their personalities. When working [with Cloud Gate 2’s dancers] in the beginning, I had to keep telling them don’t be afraid,” he said.
Following the Taipei run, the company will take the show on the road, first to Greater Taichung on April 20 and 21, and then to Greater Kaohsiung at the beginning of May as part of the Kaohsiung Spring Arts Festival.
