Bulareyaung Pagarlava is an artist in residence at National Taichung Theater. He and his own crew, Bulareyaung Dance Company, use observation and experience in their daily lives to create dancing compositions which are full of aboriginal culture. It will be performed at National Taichung Theater on October 7th and 8th.
‘Stay That Way’ is one of the Bulareyaung Dance Company double bills and originated from ‘Nine Songs’ by Cloud Gate Dance Theatre. He was profoundly touched by the melodious voices of the Puyuma women. He therefore decided to reunite three singers, Muagai, Senayan, Ivi who were the initial members of his dance company. He even lived with them in their aboriginal tribe and experienced their life style. They worked on and practiced this performance together under the scorching sun. This will be the first show to be staged at the sky garden since National Taichung Theater opened last year.
Furthermore, there is another double bills, Colors, which will be performed on October 8th. The idea for this dancing composition comes from the typhoon that invaded East Taiwan last year. It destroyed their practice area so Bulareyaung made his dancers and crew members practice on the beach. During this time, dancers ‘step on the waves’ while communing with nature, creating an atmosphere of cheerful emotion and genuine smiles which has helped constitute the outstanding performances. Bulareyaung Dance Company will bring the rustic and stunning view of East Taiwan to National Taichung Theater.
