Avgang 2023: My name is Ruoxi若浠”

The performance “My name is Ruoxi若浠”, is based on Taoist philosophy as described in “The Book of Changes” and examines the origin of the choreographer's name and the relationship between the five elements found in nature (metal, wood, water, fire, and earth).

The name Ruoxi was given by a Chinese feng shui master who combined the time and the date of the choreographer’s birth to calculate the missing cosmic elements to give her a new name which is more in balance with the Universe. This name would go on to signify her new birth and a new path to a lucky future.
“I was Yiqi, but my name is Ruoxi.”

In this project, Ruoxi Yang uses her name and her own growth experience as a starting point to explore where human beings come from. She cites the rhymes of Chinese classical dance, the elements of Chinese calligraphy and uses the Chinese cultural background to find out how human beings can strike a balance between their natural environment and their social development.
