U-Theatre Performing Arts Camp 2014 《優人表演藝術體驗營》

The U-Theatre Performing Arts Camp is a carefully designed curriculum for body and mind distilled from over 25 years of practice by U-Theatre. Led by Artistic Director Ruo-yu Liu and Music Director Chih-chun Huang, offering the curriculum including sacred dance, physical theatre action, martial arts, meditation and drumming training.

Workshop Hosts:
1. Liu, Ruo-yu (U-Theatre Artistic Director)
A leading theatrical performer in the early 1980s and a native of Taiwan, Ms. Liu earned her MA in Theatre Arts from New York University, and was selected for a year-long master class under Polish director Jerzy Grotowski.

In 1988 Ms. Liu founded U-Theatre and introduced novel facets of drumming, meditation, and martial arts to create a series of original works integrated with a wide range of elements drawn from music, literature, drama, dance and ritual.

In 2008 Liu was awarded the 12th Annual Taiwan National Award for Arts: Best Art Performer.

2. Huang, Chi-chun (U-Theatre Drumming and Martial Arts Master)
Born in Malaysia, Mr. Huang has been a drumming and martial arts practitioner for over 30 years, and is known for his mastery in synthesizing these two disciplines into a new form of performing arts.

Mr. Huang joined U-Theatre in 1993 as Drumming Master. His unconventional training regime of “meditation before drumming” has both elevated the disposition of the troupe and laid down a solid foundation for a contemporary artistic expression uniquely characteristic of U-Theatre.
Prior to joining U-Theatre, Mr. Huang performed with Taipei Folk Dance Theater and Cloud Gate Dance Theatre.

U-Theatre Senior Performers

1. 優人神鼓藝術總監 – 劉若瑀



2. 優人神鼓音樂總監與鼓樂武術指導 – 黃誌群
黃誌群為優人神鼓音樂總監,1965年出生於馬來西亞,六歲開始學習擊鼓,十歲正式拜師學習中國武術,浸淫在武術與擊鼓的世界超過二十年。曾加入臺北民族舞團及雲門舞集,隨團巡演於歐洲、美國和非洲等許多國家。他於1993年初到印度,學習靜坐及領悟 「活在當下」的智慧,從此多次進出印度與西藏。當年受劉若瑀之邀,擔任「擊鼓指導」,以「先學靜坐,再習擊鼓」的方式,改變了劇團的體質,奠定了優人以擊鼓與武術的表演形式基底。黃志群認為「表演不是向外投射的力量,而是內在自我的探尋。」

3. 助理講師 – 劉書志與李彥慧
