Dance Force-South

Choreography: Toru Shimazaki

As part of their 30th anniversary celebration, Dance Forum Taipei has invited Japanese choreographer Toru Shimazaki who reconstructed and reworked his piece South with the company. The introspective work consisting of featuring duets, solos and group forms leaves room for an individual display of unique body expressions of the nine performers within the collective and harmonious movement. Shimazaki is virtuously blending music into dance, making his believe visible that "good music can always reach your heart."
