What If the Black Box Were an Audio Maze?
Strolling Around to Trace the Origin of Sound, Encompassed by Sound
Sound waves bring out hedonistic sensation.
Try to picture this: You stand on the front lines, attacked by the sound waves as your heart thumps wildly.

Sound waves provide directions.
Try closing your eyes, and tell directions by listening in the darkness.
Sound waves encompass all of us. Try to imagine being surrounded by boisterous human voices which disorient with the sensation of being deep underwater.

Succeeding in the contemporary acousticallychallenging Dear John in 2013 and Curve Your Earways, which took full advantage of the Tutu Gallery at the National Taichung Theater in 2018, the principal artist of the M.O.V.E. Theatre LIN Kuei-ju joins forces with sound-installation artist WANG Chung-kun to create Resonance: Into the Maze. Together with the Freedom Beat, TUNG I-fun, and Fangas Nayaw, an accomplished creative team was formed. Moved from the irregular

cave-like space to the Black Box, the sole unchanged part is the joy arisen from interacting with variations of sound waves.

Try to picture a space turned into a place for resonance, leading us on a walk along various paths. Let's stroll around to trace the origins of sound.
