Monologue 非墨之舞

Monologue

Monologue is about psychological experience of women. Inspired by women’s diaries and “Nu Shu” which is an old writing system in China used only among women, “Monologue” tries to convey women’s internal and external contradictories which comes from the conflicts between the personal emotion and external constraints. Besides, “Monologue” is also reflection on traditional culture, aesthetics and patriarchy society. Therefore, dance, Chinese music, multimedia animation and interactive installation are combined and employed. The images of animation present the style of Chinese calligraphy. Dancers’ movements respond to the soft but intense characteristics of Chinese calligraphy. However, the interaction between dancers and that between dance and animation are sometimes violent. The contrasts symbolize the constraints on and the conflicts of women.

​As an interdisciplinary work, “Monologue” combines new technologies and the elements of classical art from Chinese dance, music and calligraphy. New Technologies such as Flash Programming, IR Sensor Installation, WiiRemote are employed in this work. Through the new technologies, classical images and dancers’ interaction with each other and with the animation, “Monologue” present the idea of rethinking tradition and the relationship between tradition and women.

非墨之舞

《非墨之舞Monologue》乃企圖整合舞蹈、多媒體影像、中國音樂、互動裝置等跨領域表現形式,以女書的概念呈現多種3D動態影像與符號,並以舞者肢體與影像作相互交織之對話,而書寫出女性在父權文化中之無奈狀態,但藉由女書化為群鳥飛翔與竄流之意象來敘述女性內在的吶喊,最後舞者以手中的互動介面自信地畫出白色筆觸而塗去女書,展現女性在企圖逃離父權文化的束縛後終獲釋懷。

《非墨之舞Monologue》藉由了解女性經驗如何形構主體自覺,以個人成長背景回顧與主體經驗為敘述,在動畫影像上,以搖曳樹枝的陰影及如刺繡動作般地黑色線條意函,輸出書寫著「女字」、「女書」,表達傳統女性被定型、被規訓的狀態。而在舞蹈上,藉由舞者女性身體詮釋「她」、「她們」與「我」、「我們」之女性主體自覺意象,象徵欲衝破主體束縛與去除內心的掙扎。
