赵梁舞蹈剧场 | 「东方灵欲三部曲」
Profound beautiful, dreamlike -- for the first time, well-known modern artist, Mr. ZhaoLiang, manifests the profound essence of traditional Chinese culture in his Soul & Desire Trilogy (Dreams of Zen / The Tea Spell / Escaping From the Mountain). He adopts the technique of “drama within drama”, uses antiques as stage props, creates surreal visual effects and integrates symbolism in the dances. The performances are spiritual creative, philosophical, visual and experimental while the plots are beautiful stories themselves.
traditional Chinese culture and his fluency in eastern dance vocabulary after he spent time overseas. The three chapters are independent yet interrelated. Together they form an experiment in terms of theme, structure, dance components and visual effects, which demands extraordinary artistic talent and courage. All these may as well make Zhao Liang an avant-garde in the modern dance history of China. In fact, these art works have also won round applauses overseas. They transcend the boundary between modern and classic, connect the East with the West and shine forth with something universal -- the human nature.
“All compounded things are like dreams and bubbles,
like dews and lightening-- that’s how they shall be viewed.”
《幻茶谜经》 / The Tea Spell
Plot of The Tea Spell originates from a group of antiques unearthed at Famen Temple: exquisite tea sets used by Emperor Xizong of Tang Dynasty. The show uses tea as a vehicle and illustrates the encounters of a stunningly beautiful woman(played by male dancer) with a farmer, an officer and a monk respectively.
The three male characters imply people with three different kinds of psychological orientations. After meeting with the stunning beauty, they are either being allured, or pretending nothing has happened, or struggling, or getting carried away. The storyline is vivid and manifests profound human nature. Through multi-sensory experience, the audiences glimpse into the subtle wisdom of the universe in a detached way. In terms of visual effect, the performance presents its cutting-edge aesthetics in terms of costumes, props, choreography and artistic makeup.
All these are full of cultural characteristics and artistic creativity. In this performance, all three antiques are presented from Famen Temple on the stage for the first time. Funded by the National Art Funds 2015, the dance group toured in Germany and South Korea on behalf of the Chinese cultural and artistic community and was very well received in the two countries. Due to his natural yet touching works, Director Zhao Liang is called the “Shepard” from the East by the Germans. During its national tour in China, A Tea Spell repeatedly sets the record for the box office in the modern dance history and is met with great enthusiasm by the fans in Beijing, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Tianjin and Chongqing. The Tea Spell has become one-of-a-kind masterpiece for the Chinese audiences, attracting attention and warm support from those who care for their inner growth.
尾声 / Epilog
Ashes to ashes; dust to dust...
In each show of the Trilogy, Buddhistic music is played at the end of the performance, creating a compassionate and harmonious atmosphere. These art works mirror the fact the all forms -- myself, others and myself again --are merely layers of armor that we put on in the mundane world, from one lifetime to another. When the body is free from its constraints, it starts to become relaxed and flexible and emotions may arise. Better let go of the attachment to this body as well!
天地清明，山高水长都是肉身，浩瀚星空，霞光云霁，无一不是归处。 The sky is pure and the earth is clear, while human form could be manifested everywhere in the landscape. The stars are shimmering and the clouds are floating, while my home could be set anywhere in this universe.
于万籁俱静中，才能听到一朵花开的声音。 In the absolute silence, one can hear the sound of a flower blossoming.
Know all sentient beings. Know the world. Eventually ... know thyself.
期盼与您和光同尘！ Look forward to seeing you there!
A fantastic attempt of oriental aesthetics in western interpretation, an absolute tribute to the Chinese Dance History!
Zhao Liang—Contemporary Artist

He was the first Chinese winner of “Roman Award” for modern dance at the international dance competition.
