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.

Quand on porte ce parfum, on a l'impression d'être unique.
J'ai également apprécié la présentation du flacon dans un beau pochon.

bons parfums

mais je n'ai pas eu de coup de foudre.

I'm not one of those fragrance connoisseurs that can identify every note in a fragrance (other than the obvious amber, vanilla, tobacco, or patchouli notes), however, I can tell you that each of Christele's scents makes me happy - from each glorious spray to the interesting dry down. Pure scent. Love, love, love. This is why I wear fragrances.


J'ai senti le parfum en boutique... j'ai fondu direct... un coup de foudre olfactif... j'ai acheté les 3 doses d'essai... mais celui-là m'a carrément envoûté que je l'ai pris en 50ml... une œuvre d'art ce parfum... j'adore... merci pour cette superbe création...

C'est niche!

Une composition vraiment extraordinaire, loin des sentiers battus, et pourtant portable comme une seconde peau.
