Design Statement

Cuo Tai Ji is spread in southwest of China of the ancient Yi ethnic group ( roughly produced in the Tang Dynasty). In ancient times, Cuo Tai Ji is performed in the fields and small village. This time, the performance was based on original ecological acting to show "the human ancestor's play, the beginning of the people, the beginning of the dance and the source of the play".
Stage design use mask as main visual image, with the black, white, gold tone, to create an empty space with no sense of emptiness and distant boundaries. The design attempts to place the entire performance in a chaotic set of universes. The image materials and set painting methods refer to a large number of Northwest Guizhou Yi ethnic original art style which has strong wild rough emotion.
