默契 (pronounced ‘Moe-chee’ or ‘Mo-Qi’) is a phrase in Mandarin that has no direct English translation, but can variously be interpreted as ‘silent bonding’, ‘unspoken agreement’, ‘mutual understanding’, ‘tacit’, ‘in sync’.

Chun-liang Liu and Clinton Green are artists working together with dance, music, movement and sound. Their performances, often unofficial and in public spaces, seek engagement and interaction with audiences and passersby. 默契 describes their connection in performance.

「默契」是一個台灣/澳洲的雙人團體,由表演藝術工作者劉純良與實驗音樂家Clinton Green共同組成,透過舞蹈、音樂、動作與聲音,以大量的即興創作現場演出。
「默契」的演出經常發表於未經允許的公共場所,大量涉入現場觀/聽眾與路人的參與、互動。團名說明了兩人在演出中對彼此直觀的連結,不經語言與討論,透過即興逐漸發展。當然,也包含著現場所有參與者共同建立的默契。
