門 / Gate
【Art Orientation Space】 is a theatrical group founded in 2007. This group's first work, the physical drama, Gate, covered different fields such as dancing, drama, multimedia of visual imageries, two-dimensional photography and installation art. This work deals with depiction of human birth just like a start of a new life and also a life journey experienced after a door is open. Opening and closing many doors every day, people link one space to another through a door. Everyone's destination is entirely different. But which door can lead people to go to the freest and safest place? Using her initial plan "metempsychosis" (a Buddhist term) as a start, Choreographer Huang Yuanyuan adopts "Gate" as a concrete symbol to imply the metempsychosis. There are repeating, repeating from the start, and falling into the same trap as well as starting, ending and restarting. Would you like this or not?
