The pronunciation of the letter 'U' is similar to the word meaning excellence in Chinese. In ancient China, the same word also meant performers.
The Zen masters in China over a thousand years ago had said that a true artist must combine 'Tao' (self-improvement) with skill (the learning and maturity of art). The U-people believe that the combination of Tao and skill is the goal of their life and artistic creation.
Residing on a remote hillside near Taipei, enabling deep contemplation and physical training, U-people call forth the inner truths of dance and non-dance and one-stroke drumming through their restrained movements and impeccable percussion technique, developing this illuminating oeuvre over four years.
