“Where did the form of the body come from? “ ‘Play’ is the essence of humans,” said Johan Huizinga. Neoteny, the form we acquired during our evolution, is the ability to keep possibilities for the future without specializing. It encourages us to search and discover the unknown. It might be the tolerance of nature that allows us to reserve insignificant elements. Enormous possibility is born and dies, endlessly repeated.

In this trio, the female dancer dreams of a life of a bird and the male dancer symbolizes a supporter, a cage, a heart of mirror and a dream. She is thirsty to be free flying through the open blue sky. She is willing to sacrifice everything and to do whatever it takes in order to achieve this dream. However, in reality, people often feel trapped in their own little bubbles because of a different morality, different beliefs, different ideals, and different responsibility. We say to ourselves that we can’t always follow our heart and do whatever we want to do in order to chase the dream.

We are tamed. We are trapped in the cage we build for ourselves. In this work, the female dancer wears a special head piece called “Ling Zi”. Its long pheasant tail feathers often worn on warriors’ helmets in traditional Chinese opera in order to present the warriors’ power and skill. In this trio, “Ling Zi” presents an image of a bird, an extension of inner emotions, a desire to escape from reality, as well as the passion to chase the dream. “Ling Zi’’ swings around as the dancer moves through space to express the real struggles and battle on the inside. In real life, if we never take actions to achieve our dream, then dream will always be just a dream, like that weightless “Ling Zi”.

If the dream is something worth fighting for, then we must go after the dream, take action, and do whatever it takes to make the dream come true. Like an old Chinese proverb, “Though death befalls all men alike, it may be heavier than Mount Tai or lighter than a feather. People live and people die, but the spirit they left forever shines.”
