Many years ago, choreographer CHEN Wu-Kang and video director SUN Ray initiated a project to explore dance and video.  “Forced Discussion” in 2016 was a presentation of the outcome of their on-going research on dance video. In Thank You So Much for Your Time, they are collaborating with Stage Designer, Lighting Designer, Sound Designer and Stage Manager, so as to broaden their perspective onto the performance site. On stage, everyone seeks out the aura of the performance scene with their own specialties, creating a scene that will be questioned, emphasized, and obvious in sight.
Thank You So Much for Your Time starts from the site of physicality and media which include actions, self-enquiries and desires. Through freedom and ritual passages, against the transitioning moments in life, we will live through intimacy and co-sharing. By establishing a dialogue, and evoking the consciousness of looking and existentiality, the performers will awaken the collective perception of the masses and amalgamate a temporal common experience.
In the four seasons
In this era with the disappearance of aura, how many shallow fates do we need?
How small a thought it takes to fill up a whole life

There’s no height in spring scenery
It’s all beautiful regardless of length
There’s no height in spring scenery
It’s all beautiful regardless of length

The eye is the best tool for learning
Even watching garbage
is also able to learn something
Saw him over there gazing at us
Go ask him
Prefer to roll in or out

There’s no height in spring scenery
It’s all beautiful regardless of length
There’s no height in spring scenery
It’s all beautiful regardless of length
