Taiwan’s premier indigenous dance-theatre company presents a richly-patterned, open-hearted performance in which private feelings are always on the verge of being made public. Both physically and emotionally charged, Tjimur’s work embraces a bounty of intoxicating, artfully expressed sensations. Working in close collaboration with the company’s founding artistic director Ljuzem Madiljin, in-house choreographer (and sibling) Baru Madiljin and three dynamic dancers bring ancient Paiwan cultural traditions up to date. They know that every human heart holds profound secrets. Their appealing, fine-tuned awareness lends the unique personal and tribal impulses of Varhung – Heart to Heart a distinctly universal resonance.
Please Note: there will be no shows on August 6th, 13th or 20th.
