Choreographer Wen Wei Wangs work Ying Yun, being born at a heated time of gender discourse, raises the platform of choreographing to the female performers. The creative process involves dialogues between Ying Yun’s dancers and artistic director Wen Wei Wang, with the aim to translate their stories into movement.
Ying Yun is the name of Wang’s mother, who passed away four years ago from ovarian cancer. A significant influence on him becoming an artist, Wang dedicates the new creation to her and engages the dancers to interpret the story, and in turn share their 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 setting.
