        Presentation: 鳥與水舞集

        Bird and Water Dance Ensemble is the first dance ensemble formed by people with physical, visual and other disabilities in Taiwan. The ensemble has performed internationally after being founded in 2003, and also has won many Gold Medal and awards in international competitions.

        Combining the art of dancing and growth of the mind, they have explored the artistic potentials of the people with disabilities. They have enhanced people’s mind, enriched the quality of daily lives, promoted the special arts and culture development, and further purified our general practice in the society.

        Through sharing and applying the special arts of dancing, the members have repeatedly overcome various difficulties, constantly encouraged each other, and have always displayed their creativities with a goal to bring happiness to all. Over the years, they have participated in the educational programs of schools and prisons to raise awareness of life. While raising social awareness, the troupe has also generated cooperation, passion, agility and encouragement amongst its members.

        Originating from the purest motive, this group of disabled dancers through their unique style and perseverance have managed to attain self-understanding and life-fulfillment, thereby engendering a joy of dance, which has created a moving and reflective experience for the audience. With high self expectation, the members hope to pursue a higher artistic state of mind. By utilizing their tremendous passion for art, they aim to dance the beauty of life, thereby creating a greater self-actualization.




        The Transformation 蛻變
        Journey 旅程

        鳥與水舞集是台灣第一支由截肢者、視障者及侏儒症者所共同組成的舞團。成立於2003年,結合不同障別的舞團,難度比單一障別舞團都還要來的高,雖然如此,團員們不因難度增高而退縮,反而更用心學習。鳥與水團名的意涵是:希望舞蹈的世界中,舞者不要因現實中身體的殘缺,而阻饒了追夢的決心,反而要能像鳥一樣的自在飛翔,像水一樣的柔軟流動。在舞台前後,團員們努力孕釀出一場場的生命之歌,從懷疑的人生、接受的人生、奮鬥的人生、蛻變的人生再到自在的人生。上百場的演出,足跡遍及海內外,不論台上或台下互相扶持,做自己最佳的男女主角,用「心」舞動自己,引起無數觀眾的共鳴和感動。
