White Flag by LIU Yen-cheng

Born in Nantou, Taiwan and a graduate of the Graduate Institute of the School of Dance, Taipei National University of the Arts majoring in dance creation, LIU Yen-cheng is now an independent choreographer.

LIU Yen-cheng believes that ‘as long as one is alive, the body is there; as long as the body exists, movement happens spontaneously’. He takes this idea as the core part of his creation.

He was supported by the Art Makers Project of the Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan and also by the LO Man-fei Dance Foundation Scholarship for the research and experiment of his creations. He was awarded a special prize for choreography by the panel of the 2nd Beijing International Ballet and Choreography Competition. Since 2013, his work, Tschüss!! Bunny has toured to Europe (Avignon OFF, France; Tanzmesse NRW, Düsseldorf, Germany), America and the Asia- Pacific region. LIU Yen-cheng’s recent works include Monster, Under surface, The highest place - all the same, A piece of temporary chaos, Tschüss!! Bunny, One room, Nowhere, Basement, and A Room.
