20 Clips Project

May 15, 2021 ~ ???
Online (Weekly Update): https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLl0TtgEupO0Q-AGXooXisHrEzwSw2A783


Life without dance is unbearable, and Wan-Chao is motivated to continue dancing! Inspired by Super Hsia’s 暖大叔系列 and Rosina’s the100dayproject, she is launching a project - to post 20 short dance clips! (Don’t expect too much… You know, there's only so much a one-person@home can do…)

Throw out some ideas of images, text, movement, or whatever if you're so inclined! Not sure what will come out, but surely will make her inspired and busy! 😉

"繁忙的台北街頭, 蜂擁車陣人潮, 不間斷的車聲人語。她,獨自佇立街頭。


再回到故鄉,已認不清身在何處。只想撥開層層吵雜的簾幕找塊安靜的地方落腳, 卻壓不住腦海中一幕幕過往神遊的畫面, 起身再度漫遊…"
“The crowds, noises, lights, the smog of Taipei! I am foraging my hometown for a quiet place to settle, but sequences from my past journeys keep coming back before my eyes… And then I find myself: once again I am walking toward the unknown...”

Having returned to Taiwan after 15 years in the San Francisco Bay Area, Wan-Chao Chang performs a solo work with traditional ethnic dance forms of Indonesia, China, the Balkans, and Western Asia, and blending in the contemporary dance elements she was exposed to during her stay in the U.S. This new piece describes the inner and outer journey one has to make when seeking one's cross-continental roots.
