布拉瑞揚舞團
BULAREYAUNG DANCE COMPANY

布拉瑞揚舞團成立於2014年,由台灣原住民編舞家布拉瑞揚‧帕格勒法 (以下稱布拉)創立。在過去的二十年中,布拉多次受邀為國內外許多舞團編舞並演出。儘管如此,當布拉意識到自己身為一個原住民,也是一個排灣族人時,「認同」的過程引領了他往原住民文化的路上前進,並開啟了一段新旅程,更專注在文化養份當中來創作。

他決定回到家鄉,並建立了自己的舞團,為了與有才華的原住民青年工作,不僅可以跳舞,更有令人驚艷的歌聲,這也是布拉瑞揚舞團最重要且不同於一般現代舞團的特質,藉由文化上的田野調查,更深入的去看見文化裡頭蘊含的內在,發展屬於原住民特有的身體表述和語彙。成立舞團,是要將原住民的孩子以及舞團作品帶到國際上,分享給更多的觀眾。


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.
