Awakenings in a Dream

This work is inspired by one of the short stories in Kenneth PAI Hsien-yung’s collection of Taipei People of the same name, borrowing from the scene where she sits in the room alone reflecting on her life. The crisscross and sense of loss on destiny and love, the suspicion, the longing, the helplessness appear to be perpetual subjects lingering from past to present time. The one she sees in the mirror appears to be real and fake; the fan reveals how hard she tries to keep a hold back on her deep emotional secrets. This solo incorporates various elements of Chinese dance but breaks through traditional format, allowing one to to reflect and self-observe.

MUI Cheuk Yin

Recognized for her skills in merging the East & West culture, MUI Cheuk-yin achieved her fame at a young age and preferred dancing solo. MUI was a principal dancer of the Hong Kong Dance Company; then had forsaken her position at the company to travel to Europe where she worked with many dance artists. In 2000, MUI was invited by Pina Bausch and Folkwang Tanzstudio to choreograph Whispering Colour, and performed as a guest dancer in the Rite of Spring with Tanztheater Wuppertal.
