Founded in December 2004, HORSE has established a distinctive profile with delicate physical movements and unrestricted creativities. In 2008, Velocity has won the Taishin Arts Award Taiwan’s grand arts prize. In 2013, 2 Men has won the 1st prize and Audience Award in Kurt Jooss Preis, PACT Zollverein, Essen, Germany. 

 

In recent years, CHEN Wu-Kang, the artistic director, and SU Wei-Chia, the general director, have developed their unique art praxis. They continue to advance the company into the bright future, a period of metamorphism for them in the Taiwanese contemporary dance scene.
