The Priest Under the Sunset
Presenting on stage the ritualistic body vocabulary and cultural richness of the "cikawasay" (priest).
Based on the tribal role of the Pangcah cikawasay (priest), the production examines the identity issues in the coexistence of Pangcah faith and Western religion in the present age. At the same, it provides imagination of the ancient through the body movements of the priest.
Kuo-Shin Chuang, the artistic director, is not about speed or the dazzling display of skills. He utilizes the unassuming body language of the priest to form a fluid geometrical space. The reflective space transforms into the disappearing culture of Pangcah priest in Taiwan, narrating the helplessness of a declining tribe while humbly documenting the passing of a generation.
