Dancer(s)
LI Ke-hua, CHEN Wei-jie


My life is like an ever  owing river at great speed, because I am fond of the ocean and I long for the boundless sky; even if I have to walk on the path from the peak of the Himalaya Mountain to the abyss of the Paci c ocean.


I have already known that it will not be a usual path full of turmoil, exposure to the blazing sun and of the freezing snow, hit by falling rocks and burn by chilling wind...


In the unknown zone and in this unknown world, dri ing but not going along without a destination, but it is a journey of the inner world, not so much on the far away but more on the present.
