Troupe Intro

Anarchy Dance Theatre was founded in 2010 by Chieh-hua Hsieh, who moved from the realm of architecture to dance. The company aims to reflect the imagination of dance through its various works, providing more diverse ways to appreciate and understand dance in Taiwan. Anarchy Dance Theatre strives to develop its own approaches to dance training, concentrating on awareness of the body, observation of the environment and the power of thought. These concepts have become the core of the company’s work. The troupe is also keen to explore new modes of choreography and to examine the creation of dance in order to offer audiences numerous ways in which they can read the body and structure. Anarchy Dance Theatre continuously strives to update itself through constant creativity. Based on Taiwan’s rich and diverse culture, the company desires to break through standard aesthetics of dance to find its own method of expression with a contemporary approach, and to promote Taiwanese dance to the world with its unique creations.

Artistic Director
HSIEH, Chieh-Hua / Jeff

The artistic director of Anarchy Dance Theatre graduated from the Department of Architecture at National Cheng Kung University. Owing to his interest in and adoration of contemporary dance, he studied at the Graduate Institute of Dance Creation at Taipei University of the Arts. After graduation, he devoted himself to contemporary dance. With this double expertise in architecture and dance, Hsieh brings a unique spatial concept and fresh body style. His works boldly challenge traditional choreographic skills. By using structural shape as the main body, the dancer’s form becomes the core of the works. Recently, Hsieh has been committed to the integration of technology and the body, seeking to use technology as the medium to produce an impact on the audience.

Quote/Award

The work successfully distinguishes the qualities of technology and dance, while making them indispensable and inseparable from each other.

The work fires the audience’s imagination and delivers a highly concentrated spiritual experience. Through the extraordinary level of choreography, the work creates a stamina that continues to be felt – the effect is unforgettable.
