A SOLO DANCE
Us, the rebellious dancers.
first project of 云云 Yun Collective
The meaning of a decent woman is set by this patriarchic society. For generations, women have been expected to dance in the same choreography; however, underground, many of us fight to break the pattern and to change the design.
This performative drawing solo is inspired by Chinese calligraphy.
'女', the Chinese word for woman, contains three strokes. It has to be written in the set order, as women are expected to perform in certain patterns.
The performer embodied the writing and transformed it into dancing. Through the repetitive movements, she undergoes a negotiation between the outside world and herself.
云云 YUN COLLECTIVE
云云 Yun Collective 是創立於2019的女性創作團隊，透過肢體與物件的對話，探索「展場中的表演，劇場中的展覽」，在邊界之間發掘新的可能。
Yun Collective, founded in 2019, explores femininity through bodies and performative objects.
This is a collaboration of the two founders, Taiwanese artists, Ruby Yun-Er Chang and Vera Yun Lee, who respectively come from illustration and performance back grounds, and both engage in multiple practices.
They aim to blur the boundary between live art and static exhibits by extending the traces created in performances into wholesome concept exhibitions.
