Ali Pfleger and Artists

Arm’s Length

Body Horror was founded in 2023 by Ali Pfleger and Aaron Girard. The collective seeks to create work that expands the possibilities of contemporary dance through a strong sense of collaboration between Ali and Aaron and a strong emphasis on utilizing the dancer's unique talents. We strive to showcase each dancer's individualized training, facility and experiences to create so that the work extends into their being. In cultivating work highly specific to each cast and the creators themselves, the possibilities of what can be created give rise to a culmination of experiences that is captured and shared.

2. Dance Piece Information: 
There are three women. They don't seem to lack anything on the outside. But they have an invisible bond. So lonely.The choreographer choreographs the scenes of women overcoming it. This is not just a story of three women on stage. This is the story of all of us who can overcome any barrier. The dance work expresses the glass ceiling placed on women's lives due to the roles and restrictions imposed on them.

Mending Dance Theater

Transparent Alternative Street Talk, New Theater Version

Founded in 2014, Mending Dance Theater producing forward-looking, cross-domain dance works that link deeply with society, developing an aesthetics full of dramatic tension and poetic quality in the contemporary dance theater.

“Alternative Talk”(黑白話) is pronounced in Taiwanese. It consists of many people’s dialogues and their soliloquies and is experimented in Taiwanese rap. This work fuses the contemporary body languages of modern dance and street dance, presenting one of Taiwan’s features: multiple cultures. In this performance, Mending Dance Theater creates a new story in Taiwanese, turning the feelings of watching the disappearance of memory and culture into dances from the perspective of urban youth. In addition to Mending Dance Theater's expertise in the fusion of the body experiences of modern dance and street dance, the combination of a poetic atmosphere, soundscapes, and Taiwanese dialogues in rap with funk rhythm create a fresh experience of both strangeness and closeness to the audience.
