YIBU Dance Company DE
1:6 | 5:1
Choreography: Chun Zhang & Kai Strathmann
With this new production YIBU Dance starts a new cycle of work, drawing its inspiration from the 64 hexagrams of the 7000 year old book "I Ching". These hexagrams or figures are abstract notations of the eight natural elements: sky, earth, fire, water, wind, thunder, mountain and swamp. This philosophy – that is dealing with the permanence of change – had been passed down through generations. Its interpretations can also be seen as a revelation of how someone can influence his or her own fate. For each future production and each year two diagrams are randomly drawn.
