Ausencia 已 2014 年在墨西哥伊瓜拉市發生的學生消失事件為出發點,探討如何再現過去與現在這些因為政治因素消失的身體。當人只是憑空消失,沒有葬禮沒有儀式甚至沒有明確的屍體時,這是一個什麼身體的狀況?而是關於留下來的人又是什麼樣的身體狀態?該如何用舞蹈呈現那些消失與留下的身體。

The incident Iguala mass-kidnapping in Mexico (2014) motivated the choreographers to
explore the missing bodies. How to represent the bodies which had disappeared for political reasons. When a person vanishes, with no corpse to be found and not even a funeral, how would the body have been? Neither living nor dying? Or, what about the people who stay living–what kind of bodily state is it? How to present the bodies of these people through dance, those disappeared and those stayed.


The audience must step barefoot onto a 10-meter-long carpet of folded clothes to go into the stage, then they sit on the stage. The end of the carpet is connected to another carpet woven from threads made from old clothes. In the piece, there is one performer (yours truly) continues to weave the cloth on stage. The performer is also a part of the stage, like a looping video. Through this daily-life representation of women in South America, the weaving action transferred the eternal hope: as long as the action continues, the vanished bodies do not die. The concept of „persistence“ in this stage-installation references the genre of Performance Art in galleries and museums, which are mostly of a longer duration than theater shows. The idea was to mix the experiences of participation between art galleries and theater.
