Since the 1960s, performing art has been experiencing the ideological domination of contemporary art in terms of concept and form, and there is also linguistic reorganization ongoing inside itself. Controversies over concepts including “daily behavior/ performance”, “drama/ theater”, “narration/ non-narration”, “theater/ non-theater” are accompanied by such a fact that we couldn’t find an appropriate existing word to describe many ongoing art practices.
“Fusion” and “fission” are the ways of all kinds of energies being produced, meanwhile reflecting the formation and mutation of art concepts and means. From an atom to the Universe, “fusion” and “fission” could not only be presented as a long process, but also be just an instant.
“Ju Lie (fusion-fission)” is concerned about the dynamic occurrence, indicating everything temporal, and emphasizing performance of experiences. The English translation “ReActor (an object containing both actions of fusion and fission)” implies “Ju Lie” would encourage the re-explanation of action and performance.
