Choreography by Chieh-hua Hsieh
The Anarchy series started from the year 2008. Chieh-hua Hsieh has been trying to discover a new body vocabulary through instability: through turning, twisting, stretching and transformation, along with a constant shifting of weight and momentum, through which Hsieh has created new possibilities for bodies in time and in space. Furthermore, he has represented the ambiguity and complexity of human relationships, revealing the unvarnished truth of eternal instability. Under the dual background of Architecture and Dance, Hsieh's work displays exceptional creativity, space conception and character. The Anarchy series delineate the suppression and agitation of real society.
