Pei-Ling Kao  WEspering

Have you ever been in a situation where it seemed like people were in the same conversation but talking about different things? Languages can be confusing sometimes. In conversations, the adjectives are used to give additional information, feelings, descriptions so the chance of misunderstanding decreases and the level of perception increases. Conversely, the extra information contained in adjectives can lead to misunderstandings during the interpretation of an individual’s subjective consciousness. In this research project WEspering, Taiwanese choreographers/dancers I-fen Lin (CH) and Pei-Ling Kao (Hawaiʻi) aim to explore how to understand the truth and essence of the matter through means other than verbal communication. They are curious about the ways to transform information without adjectives, reducing the possibility of subjective personal consciousness influences in conveying information.
