Strange Moves from a Familiar Studio: chia.yi seetoo
Strange Moves from a Familiar Studio
Subterranean Arthouse Artist-in-residence chia.yi seetoo (dance) and guest artists Paul Roquet (video) and Khai Thu Nguyen (theater) present an evening of intermedial, interdisciplinary performances. Threaded in an energy arc, Tokyo nightscape punctuates live bodies in motion; tragicomic tales of multifaceted crossings are told as dancers talk, images dance, and ambience gels.  Including artist cameo Megan Lowe (dance).

chia.yi's art emerges from the corporeal--its surfaces, depths, and its particular and multifaceted body-mind-spiritual-materiality.  Holding an eclectic training in ballet, modern, jazz, improvisation, and Chinese martial arts, she moves regardless of genres and styles but essentially to the impulseof the emotional as well as to all those shimmering affective floats  (Pina Bausch: "I am not interested in how people move but what moves them.")  She has danced in professional projects in Taiwan, Chicago, and New York and created her own genre-bending performances that cross dance, theatre, and video art.  This "crossing" seems to also echo her state of being at the multiple junctures of cultures, languages, and the crisscrossing demands and temperaments of the intro/extrovert, resulting in such performance-as-research projects as intermedial choreography between video and dance, tweaks and recycles of Western postmodern literature and images of Taipei city mass rapid transit, punctuation and the multilingual being, and auto-ethnographic mash-up via self-styled comic storytelling dance/theater.  

chia.yi's performance at the Subterranean Arthouse will take place in the evenings of September 7 and 8, 2012 (Fri & Sat, 8pm, $10/Dancer's Group members $8).   More information about chia.yi and the upcoming performance please see
