《半身相》|皮歇.克朗淳 X 陳武康

Man is made up of many different parts and the complexity of human nature arises from whether the parts integrate as a whole or contradict each other. Can mathematical measurements like fractions express our identity, culture and art-making more accurately to represent ourselves and on behalf of others?

A danced dialogue between Taiwanese contemporary choreographer/ dancer Chen Wu-Kang and Thai classical khon master Pichet Klunchun that began as a series of conversations about their cultural backgrounds and the patriarchal social structures in both Taiwan and Thailand, BEHALF investigates the relationship between traditional and contemporary dance and between students and their teachers. It is also about East and West and about their recent fatherhood that offers audiences an intimate insight that the sum of a man’s parts is greater than the whole.
