A captivating body language

One sunny afternoon in Taiwan, I took the Taipei metro to attend a dance show called Renaissance of its Ashes — An Experimental Work by Taiwanese choreographer Ho Hsiao-mei. I found it while browsing online. The few teasers from the show caught my interest, and so I booked a ticket.

The show was performed at the Experimental Theatre at Taipei National University of the Arts as part of the Kuandu Arts Festival. Once I got off the metro station, I entered a big complex surrounded by nature and trees, where many families were enjoying the pleasant climate of that Sunday afternoon.

Since I had some free time before the show, I wandered around the university to explore the place. I walked past a building where sounds of a playing piano could be heard. With the calm atmosphere of the whole campus, it was the perfect place for aspiring and professional artists to get inspired.

Half an hour before the start of the performance, we entered the venue. The lights on the stage dimmed and went into complete darkness.

A few weak yellowish lights went on a few minutes later and moving bodies started appearing. They danced and swayed in such unusual ways that they actually reminded me of movements from the vegetal world, sometimes of seaweeds swinging with the waves, rather than of actual body movements. This totally new body language to me was so intriguing and beautiful at the same time that I got mesmerized from beginning to end.

What a great discovery! The hypnotic dance show was wonderfully interpreted by dance students from Taipei National University of the Arts.

We were not allowed to take pictures during the show. The post is illustrated with an official picture of the show taken by Taiwanese photographer Chia-Hao Chang.

Super travail, superbe parfum

J'ai rencontré Christèle Jacquemin sur le marché artisanal de Bedoin cet été et j'avais été impressionné par le travail, par les explications et l'histoire de chaque parfum mais aussi par la douceur de Christèle. J'ai voulu essayé et suis reparti avec la petite fiole. Convaincue par tant de poésie et de douceurs j'ai commandé le parfum en version plus grande pour la rentrée. Je n'ai pas été déçue : réception rapide du colis, finition au top avec un pochon pour le parfum, la boite en bois..., la photographie... Tout est là le produit est vraiment abouti . Bref c'est un investissement mais c'est tellement plus parlant que d'acheter en boutique.... Je suis ravie d'avoir croisé le chemin de Christèle à Bedoin et ravie de porter son parfum. Merci pour ce voyage olfactif et poétique.

Belles découvertes

La présentation du kit est très soignée, très qualitative.
J'ai bien aimé Meandering Soul mais j'avoue avoir eu un coup de coeur pour Underworld, je vais le tester encore à des moments différents mais je penses me l'offrir assez rapidement; bravo pour le travail accompli.
