Artist Statement:

I have backgrounds in both dance and architecture. Distinct spatial utilization and violent body language are eminent elements in my work. I founded Anarchy Dance Theatre in 2010. The Theatre’s self-referencing Anarchy Series, from Anarchy, Anarchy 1980, to Anarchy’s Dream, aims at portraying the complex web of relationships in human society. It employs the unique characteristics of the stage to create immediate connections between the performance and the space in which the performance takes place. This connection strengthens the storytelling capacity of the work. At the end of 2011, the Theatre’s collaboration with the new media art creative team Ultra Combos gave birth to the Seventh Sense. This piece shedded light on the new dance-technology connection, and was invited to be toured in many different countries.
