A SOLO DANCE
Us, the rebellious dancers.
presented by 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 told 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.

These mandarin words all pronounced ‘Yun’. We create our works to be fluid, gentle but powerful and influential as water can be and also hope to raise the representation of Asian artists in the UK’s live arts scene.
