DOCH or die:最美丽的大学简介

今天无意中发现一个在瑞典的叫DOCH的艺术类大学(University of Dance and Circus),其网站上的聊聊几段介绍文字是我看过的最美丽最动人的大学简介文字:

Our curiosity makes the world change. Expectation and longing turn our vision forward. The prerequisite for all artistic work and research is this wish to look beyond what is already known. Coming to DOCH must be a challenging, enterprising, stimulating, sometimes boring, more often entertaining experience in a caring environment where everything is possible and new frontiers are opened. DOCH is not a static room, but a well-organized chaos in continuous movement, with the kind of critical curiosity driven research needed to make the world a better place and reality into something resembling our dreams.

简单翻译一下:
我们的好奇心是使得世界发生改变的力量。期待与渴望让我们的视野得以前进。而一切艺术创作或研究的前提,就是那种希望探求已知世界以外的那种愿望。来到DOCH,必定是一种挑战、一种创造、一种刺激、也许有时候会无聊、但更多时候是有趣。所有这一切都在一个亲善的环境里发生,这里一切都是可能的,新的前沿都为您打开。DOCH不是一个静止的房间,而是一个安排有致的混乱,不停的在运动,我们被批判性的好奇心所驱动,去做研究,以让这个世界变得更好,让现实变得更像我们的梦境。

At DOCH the tradition is challenged by innovation and experiment. It is a meeting place for art, pedagogy and science, old and new theoretical concepts. Popular traditions gain new meaning and new artistic careers develop to change our ideas about what is known.

在DOCH,传统是被创新和实验所挑战的。这里是艺术、教育、科学的交汇区、也是新旧理念的冲撞场。流行的传统在此获得新的意义,新的艺术事业则在不断的打破我们关于什么是已知的固有想法。

We do not educate for the present, but for the future. It is our students and their visions that will move the world!

我们不是为了今天而教,我们为明天而教。我们相信,是我们的学生以及他们的视野,才会最终改变世界!
