Feng Dance Company
Introduction to the Dance Company and Experiences
Feng Dance Company was established in 2005 in Tainan, Taiwan, by a group of idealistic dance talents. With their eyes on the stars, and feet on the ground, they dedicated themselves to artistic creativity and educational endeavors, hoping to contribute towards the advancement in cultural development and invigoration of the locality.
The Director of Feng Dance Company (FDC) has long been a devotee in the promotion of contemporary dance creations and expanding the horizons for choreography in Taiwan. FDC is adamant in the pursuit of original creativity and crossover collaborations, and continues to strive after artistic practices that foster the connection between dance art and daily life.
Since 2010, FDC has stretched its creative productions to the annual Beyond Contemporary Interdisciplinary Dance Workshop. Starting from 2020, prestigious dance performers of wide renown were invited from home and abroad to join the Feng Dance International Gala.
FDC has wide range courses in body readjustment, pilates, contemporary and improvisational dancing, and is an avid advocate for quality and professional dance programs.
The creative vision of Feng Dance Company
Contemporary dance may seem at first abstract, but it is indeed one of the closest representations that we can obtain as an artistic expression of daily life. The artist who becomes aware of life and the world through visual and bodily sensual stimulation creates a work of art that poses questions back to life and the world. As Maurice Merleau-Ponty once said, “Visible body, invisible spirit”, “The shape of everything goes into the work. He who comes through the eyes, speaks to the eyes.”
