This event has now passed.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.
