In an interview with Brariyan, he said that going home is a long way, and the concept of home is actually a self-identity. On this way, he went from getting his name back to really knowing himself, for decades, struggling and occasionally frustrated. But he felt that it was a pleasure to dig into his own life so hard.
"Don't be afraid of the sun and rain, let's be brave together"
The big face on the text is the new work of the Braiyan dance troupe this year, which is about to be performed in the two-room courtyard; they want to say that the road home is long, not because i am far away from home, but because I am never sure where I belong. Has been the top ten outstanding young people, known as the new generation of Yunmen successor, and then on behalf of Taiwan was invited to New York Masha. Graham dance troupe choreography, Aboriginal dancer and choreographer Brariyan, with his title, once wanted to go wherever and wherever it was going. But he said, You call my beautiful name, I don't know who I am.
He mentioned that human life is in a certain moment, suddenly feel that they have nothing.
We're all going to have a stage where we haven't grown up yet.
Talk about this year's work, from the Aramco singing songs. The Ames are divided by age, and that's what they say when the minors train to boost morale. No fear, the sun rain, together brave: "In fact, I thought, in a person's life, we will have a stage has not grown up." Everyone has. 」
"In the aramey culture, when they reach the adult class, they will be together for the rest of their lives. Share together, be happy together, protect each other. I love that feeling. 'We do anything, or encounter difficulties at some stage, and we are always reminded to be brave, ' Mr. Braryan said. But what is courage? The culture of the Ami tribe suddenly inspired him. Grow like a trap, you will fall and hurt, but after seeing their work, everyone's hand is tightly holding the next door person's, your every move, our happiness and sadness, will be caught, accepted by the group. You'll never have a place to go again.
This year is 2020. Braiyan has been back home for five years. First Nations have a very different concept of home, he says, not just the house, but the whole tribe. The things of the group are shared in the group: "So, we talk about "go home", we say the whole tribe, it is the whole culture." 」
And the whole culture is equal to every individual. Who are you? How difficult it is to find the answer to this question?
Braiyan dance troupe, dancers not from Koban's origins, do not train to go that set. 'I don't want to tell them what beat you're going to come out of and do, I don't want to ruin the pure stuff on them,' he said. Because it's close to yourself. 」
Watching the Braiyan dance troupe perform, each one doesn't look the same; because every time they go on stage, they're not sure how they're going to use their bodies: "Their performance is the moment, that's the moment, I decided to sing this song today, I'm going to sing it, and Now I'm going to go to you, And I'm going to find you." It's a tacit understanding that they live together every day, you know I've been hurt, I know what kind of hard you've been through. 」
Every action, from the bottom of the heart, like the active blooming flowers, will be in full bloom before the pain and solid, will feel very tired and tired: "But I see them in the most tired time, will start to get each other to get around, even tired to laugh out." I saw the scene and felt so shocked. That's life, that's every one of them, standing on the stage.
And deciding to lead the dance troupe in this non-academic way, Braryan said, because he knew he had been through it, and if you didn't know why you were standing there in your life, you were empty, and that was terrible.
When you need the sun, it's positive;
The story of identity goes back to the year braryani was in high school, when he left Taitung to attend a dance class in Kaohsiung. The child from the tribe came to the metropolis for the first time, colorful, he was giddy, thinking of finding a safe corner to avoid first;
At that time, including the color of his skin, the way he spoke, his appearance, all the things on his body, originally in Taitung is all right, but here all of a sudden it seems to become out of place: "Out of place, you even seem to be considered a inferior species." 」
"I was only fifteen years old, and one day I was wearing the uniform of left camp high school to go to take the bus, and I passed a hotel where a voice suddenly came up and said, "Yeah, classmate!" Oh! Mountain man? Come in, there's a little mountain girl inside. That was the first time I heard this, and I was so nervous, run away. 」
"Or, for example, at school, my elder sister would call me to their classroom ten minutes after class and ask me to stand on the podium and say, "Speak!" What do I ask? "Whatever you want!" And then as soon as I speak, they'll laugh all the time. 」
In the face of this memory, he said only that he knew the children were not malicious, just fresh, funny, and had not heard the native accent: "Can you imagine?" In the 1980s and 1990s, we were called "mountain people" and we knew too little about the first nations. 」
We temporarily pulled the scene back to his hometown of Taitung. In that tribe, there are only three shops, he is the family old, from a young family favorite: "I remember when I was a child, one night I suddenly said, I want to eat sugar, my big brother on my back, go to every store to ask." Asked the tribe three did not have, I insisted that he would cross the hill to climb to another tribe's shop, they are so, in order to appease me. 」
Talking about the family, he said that no matter what city he went to, he went home as soon as he found the time: "I like the feeling that the family eats around the house, we can eat from six o'clock in the middle of the night three or four o'clock, my family is very funny, really happy with them." 」
However, a place like heaven cannot accommodate his larger dreams. He knew from a young age that he wanted to dance, and he went to the metropolis: "So you can imagine, it's okay in the tribe, it doesn't feel strange." You are very protected and inclusive. I went to Kaohsiung, only to start to exclude their identity. 」
yes, no one used to say how I was born, I could have a lot of love, but why, when I changed a place, I suddenly became unworthy of being liked?
"When I was in left camp high school, I would fly home every Saturday, and then every Sunday I would stage a mother-son-18 show. At that time I would cry to collapse, my mother did not know to let me go back; I took the last bus from the tribe to go down the mountain, I will sit in the last position, I will put my hand out of the window holding my mother's hand, she is so short, the car so open, do not want to let go. 」
He loved his family, his family, but, like the sun," this identity and descent, the way he appeared, once made him feel excluded and frightened. So, at that time, he was also divided into two halves of life, a deeper than his hometown, the more difficult the outside world, the more eager he was to go home;
So, every time he came home, his family held his tears and realized that he seemed to be carrying some kind of life setback. And himself? He realized that he was heading in the opposite direction of his home, but he didn't know that he was going further afield.
