Performed at Asia Society in September 2018, Persistence of Memory takes its audience on a journey between the real and the surreal, where imagination is the only limitation of beauty. Choreographer Ting-Ting Chang conceptualized a convergence of dance and painting, focusing on the idea of moving sculptures and reexamining Salvador Dali's drawers and Sigmund Freud's unconscious mind.
About T.T.C. Dance
T.T.C. Dance was established in the autumn of 2012 in an effort to return to the essence of dance, focusing on the body and reimagining its possibilities. Since then, the company has channeled this energy in reinventing the visual aspect of the performing art. By collaborating with artists from various fields and experimenting with different concepts, they continue to make positive strides towards a dynamic visual spectacle that is equally entertaining and inspiring. T.T.C. Dance was awarded the Grand Award of the 2016 McCallum Theatre Choreography Festival and has been recognized as a 2016 Ministry of Culture Cultivation Team, as well as being honored as a 2014 Outstanding Performing Arts Group of Taipei. Since 2013, T.T.C. Dance has received support from the Ministry of Culture, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, The National Culture and Arts Foundation, and Taipei City's Department of Cultural Affairs. Their international tour has taken them through China, England, France, Malaysia, and the U.S.
