The performances by Ou-Yang Hui-Chen Art Dance Company feature diverse formats that range from traditional folk dance to modern dance theatre. For the recent work, Bliss, the Soul of Painting and Dance, Ou-Yang Hui-Chen challenged its dancers to perform using an entirely new format: a show that retold the horrors of the sixty years of White Terror in Taiwan. Reenacting history, this dance performance incorporated music, multimedia, and drama, and executed using modern theatre techniques. Through cross-disciplinary collaboration, it narrated an intertwining story about Ou-Yang Hui-Chen’s tragic family history. For this event, Professor Ou Yang Hui-Kang, the dean of the College of Human Ecology at Shih Chien University, served as the music consultant, while Ou-Yang Hui-Chen served as the choreographer. The live music was performed by Ou-Yang Hui-Ru and others. The performance revealed the touching story of the Ou-Yang family. Award winning performers, such as Meng-Jie Du,Ming-Chi Lo, and Szu-Ting Liu served as the lead dancers who led the fifty member dance troupe. This touching piece evoked deep connotations and an exquisite sensation, which moved and captivated the entire audience.
