Chou Shu-Yi

Chou Shu- Yi starts out from the body and communicates with the world through dance and choreography. He focuses on the relationship between human beings and society. In his past creations and actions, he is capable of capturing the powers of cross-disciplinary collaboration to address the publicness of arts. His creations focus on the value of life and reflect the state of individuals or collectives in different social contexts. Through his creations, Chou Shu- Yi makes propositions of a “body vocabulary that is specifically Asian” in the forms of theatre, non-traditional theatre and dance video. He continues to create as he travels to different sites and places. In 2020 he became the first artist selected into the Weiwuying Artist-in-Residence program of National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts (2020~2024).
