When I was rehearsing a solo drama with Lee Kang-sheng in the national Theater in Taipei, I was stunned by one of the scenes … it felt like I was waiting for that moment to come for all our collaborations: he “walked” in an extremely low speed, in complete silence for 30 minutes, no action, no thoughts … what remained was only bare time and a strong sense of existence that we never felt before. (Tsai Ming-liang)
