Dance Forum Taipei is the representative of contemporary dance in Taiwan. Through engaging different choreographers, the Company acts as an open forum for these artists to come together to present and to study their ideas first hand.

Led by Ping, Heng as Founder and Wang, Yun-yu as Artistic Adviser, the Company presents performances of commissioned and re-constructed choreographies from different artist of diverse styles, ranging from inventive abstract vignettes to fantastical full-length dance theatre works.  It also encourages it dancers to present works of their own.

DFT has made more than 800 performances since its inception in 1989, touring throughout the island of Taiwan as well as abroad to Hong Kong, Singapore, Tokyo, Seoul, Malaysia, and major cities including New York (United state of American), Amsterdam (Netherlands), Bern (Switzerland).  In addition to its own productions, DFT also presents Crown Arts Festival in spring every year (until 2011).  The Crown Arts Center Theater owned by the Company had been the most creative experimental theater in Taiwan.

Influenced by western modern dance through the years, choreographers in Taiwan work hard to find their own expression and movement vocabulary which shows the different facets of contemporary dance in Taiwan.  Dance Forum Taipei acts as nurturing ground for this important development and maybe one of the most exciting sights in Asia in the 21 century. 

Dance Forum Taipei calls out artists from various fields, seeing restriction and breakthrough in collaboration with these artists. Moreover, whether it is East or West, they all look at themselves of collective consciousness and culture reflected in the mirror.
