The Company was founded in 2011 in New Taipei City. Before choreographer Tsui-Shuang Lai has created various forms of theatrical dance, performances, stage installations, video and media works. She was awarded with numerous prices. For example, the Taishin Arts Award first prize in Taipei 2009, which has successfully demonstrated her accomplishments.
The Lai’s Creative Dance Theater consists of several permanent dancers and project wise collaborators coming from different fields like dance,a music/composition, costume as well as installation and visual arts.
Tsui-shuang Lai's work is characterized by strong social issues, with a deep connection between drama and movement language. It is also full of social irony. Her choreography becomes more than a beautiful arrangement of moving bodies on stage, pushing those boundaries of contemporary dance with every new work.
Influenced from Pina Bausch, Tsui-shang lai has developed her own vocabulary of dance and movement that searches consequently for new aesthetics and ways of expression, digging deeper in our consciousness and reality conflict.
