FreeSteps – NiNi is SU Wei-chia’s work at the sixth year in his 10-year choreography project, in which he walks out of the theater and comes near you and me. It means that you will encounter dancers under a street lamp in the city, where all of the elements, including the temperature, lighting and landscape at that time as well as people like us in the surroundings, become materials for the dancers’ creation. Their physical bodies may be stretching or curling up or dancing in merriment or in pains. The variation of physical quality, the revolving of dancing steps, and shadows on the bodies left by light all contribute to shaping a physical sculpture. 

 

The FreeSteps series sets out to look for the purest essence because it brings forth the most delightful freedom. It has neither anything to do with goals, concepts and allusions, nor anything to do with overly precise and delicate arrangements. Let’s get rid of fixed imagination, expectation and assumption because it is simply a struggle between dancing steps and physical bodies. Please bring along with you the courage to let imagination run freely and expect to encounter the pure touching moment that belongs to nobody but you at the minute of inspiration.
