Reminiscence. The World of the Strange Tales 子夜。聊斋

Reminiscence. The World of the Strange Tales 子夜。聊斋's poster

The original author The Strange Tales Pu Songling (Qing Dynasty) said that maybe only the ghosts or the foxes in the dark forest can understand him well.

Reminiscence. The World of the Strange Tales dance performance was choreographed, and directed by the acclaimed Butoh master Yukio Waguri from Japan, which based on the world-famous Chinese short story The Strange Tales. Master Waguri will also be performing on stage together with the local dancers! This performance is not only presenting the mystery world of ghosts and spirits, what most important thing is that through the series of the ghost stories, the choreographer and dancers are trying to explore the human nature, and projecting the real human society, revealing out of this world good and evil for the final liquidation, and hoping for a new life!

The performance has gathered local Malay, Chinese, and Indian dancers to perform together. Other than this, Master Waguri also combined Butoh, contemporary dance, and traditional dance elements in his creation in order to create a different style and new way of dance; this will be a major highlight of the performance.

Maybe the audience is generally think that Butoh shows darkness, ugliness and grotesque side, but Reminiscence. The World of the Strange Tales is different; it tries to reflect the different faces of Butoh, also tries to explore the humanity from the darkness .And more importantly, how to find a light in darkness, honesty, goodness and beauty. We sincerely hope the audiences will be able to absorb the love and beauty.
