【看英文中國郵報學英文】古老的禪師說:過去已去,未來未至,現在無住。無住的現在,他們稱「活在當下」。優人神鼓透過新作品《時間之外》傳達人與宇宙之間的關係。

According to old Zen master teaching, the past is gone, the future is yet to come and the present is already here. With this observation in mind, U-Theatre aims to highlight the relationship between “mankind” and “the universe” in a new performance, titled “Beyond Time.”

在這樣的背景下,《時間之外》舞者透過揣摩大自然、宇宙的運行,將其融合於舞蹈動作之中,帶來發人省思的表演。此外,表演中當然不會少了優人神鼓的傳統擊鼓,舞者將大鼓背在背上,一邊以肢體動作傳達出聲音的韻律以及節奏。

Against this backdrop, the dancers imitate the moves of the planets in the solar system in an inspiring performance. Another highlight is U-Theatre’s iconic traditional drums which are carried on the dancers’ back while using their bodies to convey the sounds, creating rhythm and tempo.
