Huang Chih-Chun, Music Director
Born in Malaysia, Mr. Huang has been a drumming and martial arts practitioner for over 30 years, and is known for his mastery in synthesizing these two disciplines into a new form of performing arts. After a number of spiritual journeys to India and Tibet, where he discovered an inner sanctuary through meditation and realized the wisdom of living in the present, he started to direct his strengths inward. His keen observations of everyday sounds and ability to transform them have enriched each performance with musical articulation that is both multi-dimensional and imbued with the energy of life.
Mr. Huang joined U-Theatre in 1993 as Drumming Master. His unconventional training regime of “meditation before drumming” has both elevated the disposition of the troupe and laid down a solid foundation for a contemporary artistic expression uniquely characteristic of U-Theatre. Prior to joining U-Theatre, Mr.Huang performed with Taipei Folk Dance Theater and Cloud Gate Dance Theatre.
