BULAREYAUNG DANCE COMPANY
Bulareyaung Dance Company was founded in 2014 by Taiwan’s indigenous choreographer Bulareyaung Pagarlava (aka “Bula”) in Taiwan. During the last two decades, Bula has been invited on numerous occasions to choreograph and perform for various contemporary dance companies both at home and abroad. However, his increasing awareness of his Paiwan identity has led him towards a new path, focusing on his own indigenous culture.
He recently decided to return to his hometown and establish his own dance company in order to work with the talented indigenous youths, who not only can dance, but also have great voices, an important characteristic of this company. Through researching his own culture in greater depth with his own people, so as to find their own unique bodily expressions. Bula’s aim is to showcase his works on the global stage, performed by his indigenous company.
