M.O.V.E Theatre is a performing art group from Taiwan. It was established by Fu Hongzheng, artistic director and choreographer for the company, in 2006, with “movement, care and experiment” as the creation base of its physical theatre aesthetics and total theatre experiments as its main focus. The group aims to change, amplify and transform the common focus of dancers and audiences through sharing creations. Their works, with poetic languages, seek to explore the spiritual world of modern people. These works are themed on literature, myth, history, society and so on. The group has also worked with contemporary artists in different fields. Up till now, the group has produced over ten theatre works and has been invited to international exchanges many times.
De/part, which will be presented in the festival, is coproduced by Dong Yifen, an emerging choreographer from Taiwan, and Coordt Linke, a cross-over musician from Germany. De/part is a dream, a whisper and a way how sound refreshes the memory of the body. Dong Yifen, who is used to creating during her travels, takes sensory and physical experiences in other places as the context for movements, which features nonlinear mental time difference. Performers come to see the inside of their body with the music and a voice resounds in the darkness:”Take us where we want.”
