In this production, the performers also provide the music. Their body movements, both individually and as part of a group, are developed directly from their voices. The setting for this piece is an indigenous village. But it also attempts to break away from the stereotypical aspects of indigenous dance, and create a new vocabulary. As a program, our focus is on creating an experimental space both within and outside of Taiwan. We want everyone to see Paiwanese dances rooted in real life, free of costumes and adornment. At the same time, we wish to bring up the topics of how to distinguish and define traditional music and dance, the distance and attitudes involved in appreciating another’s culture, and the relationship between indigenous performing arts and societal/political power. As a work of song and dance, “Go Paiwan” is meant to be an approachable work of contemporary Paiwan song and dance, and a work to be realized by the performance and audience together. We sincerely hope after watching this work, you find yourself more closely connected to the Paiwan people. This connection is the main significance of our work.
