Su Wen-Chi studies the place of the human body in a world dominated by technology. Through this installation-performance, the Taiwanese dancer and choreographer performs a solo show as beautiful as it is disturbing. Alone on stage, Su Wen-Chi dances in a dark space equipped with a moving sound and light grid pattern. More precisely, it is a motorized system made of 81 rectangular hanging objects. Each one is equipped with a LED and a small speaker.
The installation seems alive and appears oppressive, even menacing. It perfectly embodies how technology has invaded our cities and our lives. The dancer who has become an androgynous being is struggling against an interactive virtual “wave”. Then, the Yilab company’s founder begins to perform a both demanding and sensual strange ballet, representing the struggle between man and machine, nature and synthetic, reality and the virtual world with some unknown language.
