This timely work, born at a heated time in the trajectory of gender discourse, raises the platform of choreographing to the female performers.
The creative process involves a series of dialogues between Ying Yun’s dancers and Artistic Director Wen Wei Wang, with the aim of translating their stories into movement.
Ying Yun is the name of Wang’s mother (Ying means Hero & Yun means Cloud), who passed away from ovarian cancer four years ago. A significant influence on his becoming an artist, Wang dedicates this new creation to her, engaging the dancers in interpreting her story, and in turn expressing their own intersectional experiences.
Ying Yun aims to give power to the human body and investigates how dance reflects the current zeitgeist in relation to the larger global issues that women and society are grappling with today.
