ABOUT CCDC
Introduction

Century Contemporary Dance Company is established in year 2000. Choreographer/artistic director Shu-Fen Yao tries to create her works based on the contemporary way of life and its culture in the dawns of the 21st century, combining various forms of performing arts, and cooperating with artists from different art disciplines. She opens up a new page in the history of modern dance in Taiwan by creating a strong relation between artisctic dance form and people's real life.

Her works combine movements, theatre, visual arts, and even architecture. By taking elements from everyday life, and put them together in a new and poetic way, she hopes that her works can in some way reflect the inner truth of life.
