Taiwanese choreographer Huang Yi, invited by the Ars Electronica Festival, showcased his work “Huang Yi & KUKA” at the festival’s opening performance in Linz, Austria on Sept. 5 and the work received an enthusiastic response. Martin Honzik, the festival director, said that he decided to include the work in the festival’s feature programs when he first saw the video highlights of “Huang Yi & KUKA.” After seeing the performance for himself, Honzik found that the work lived up to its name as “a work with foresight and influence.” This was the first time that a performing-arts piece from Taiwan has been invited to perform at both the opening and mixed-program events of the Ars Electronica Festival.

Founded in 1979, the Ars Electronica Festival is the landmark festival in the world’s techono-art circles. Now in its 43rd year, the festival attracts over 100 million participants each year. “Huang Yi & KUKA” is a duet between himself and an industrial robot. In 2012, Huang won Taipei’s Digital Art Performance Award for the work. Besides the opening event, Huang also gave three additional performances at the “Tobacco Factory,” one of the festival’s main venues.

台灣舞蹈家黃翊九月五日受邀在奧地利林茲科技藝術節開幕演出《黃翊與庫卡》,獲得熱烈迴響。藝術節總監馬汀‧弘茲克表示,他第一次見到《黃翊與庫卡》精華影片便決定邀約為藝術節重點節目,果然見證「作品的前瞻與影響力」。這也是台灣表演藝術作品首度受邀該藝術節開幕與匯演同時作演出。

奧地利林茲科技藝術節始於一九七九年,為全球科技藝術界最具指標的藝術節,今年邁入第四十三年,每年吸引超過十萬人參加。《黃翊與庫卡》為黃翊與工業機器人共舞的作品,該作獲得二0一二年台北數位藝術節的數位表演首獎。在林茲電子藝術節除了開幕演出之外,也安排在藝術節重點區域「菸草工廠」演出三場。
