歸屬 Gui Shu (Belong)

Steamworks Arts | 12 – 16 November

WORLD PREMIERE | Presented by PICA and Performing Lines WA

 

Through your eyes, I see myself
透過你的雙眼,我看見我自己

Come on a contemplative journey through the streets, suburbs and open spaces of Taipei and Perth.

Devised by an extraordinary interdisciplinary team, each performance of 歸屬 Gui Shu (Belong) fuses dance, music, sound and video projections live on stage.

The result of a 4-year intercultural exchange, this moving new work by Steamworks Arts asks how our understanding of self and home are shaped by our experiences with others.

歸屬 Gui Shu (Belong) is an invitation to reflect on moments of isolation, connection and finding your way.

VIDEO INSTALLATION
22 October – 22 December
PICA Reading Room
Duration: 8 minutes

View the 歸屬 Gui Shu (Belong) video installation, a sweeping history of the project so far, featuring scenes from Taiwan and Western Australia.
