Combines Chinese Classical dance and Modern dance to create my unique aesthetic. It is an after-life world following the theory of the circle of life in Chinese Buddhism and Tibetan Buddhism. It starts from death and follows the soul after death through the journey to start a new life again. There are four main sections that follow the seasons of Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter in terms to design elements, with the Equinox and Solstice representing the lightest and darkest days of the year. The five elements from Chinese Fengshui theory, water, fire, wood, gold and earth, are used to highlight the Chineseness in this piece.

Standing on the street, watching people passing through. They look different, dress different, and speak different. The facial expressions show people happy, sad, cold, positive and stressed…each of them has a story of their own lives. As citizens of a society, country, we are facing many different challenges. Challenges from the living environment, political environment, work… and most impact ourselves. 

As citizens of the society, we receive labels… labels of being a foreigner, immigrant, gay, white, black, Asian, poor, old, young, rich,……..people fight for the label they want, people fight for the label they don’t….

We fight for the opportunities, we fight to overcome diseases, we fight for our lives. But what matters? What are YOU fighting for? Standing on the stage, after we share our stories and expose our inner selves, you see skins, muscles, bones lines, movement, weight shitting, sharing, supporting, we are human bodies. What labels do you actually see? 

The inspiration for creating Citizen is the personal experience of my life in the USA. I have used my own stories and inserted other performers’ stories. Four dancers on stage, we tell our stories and remove the labels; we are dancers, dancers with different colors. Dancers have the same human body structures. What labels can you still see? Does color still matter?

In the early days of the pandemic, many Asian-Americans faced random acts of violence. As a Chinese immigrant living in the US since 2011, I understand the challenge that that those who look different often face. Sunflower, the great American Yellow Flower, that stands tall and follows the sun was my inspiration to showcase immigration stories and those of first-generation Americans The work is performed by first-generation Chinese-Americans – the seeds of culture for years to come, standing tall, proud, and a vital part of our community.

As a young child, my father taught me to swim. I enjoy swimming and go diving often. The feeling of weightlessness and lightness in the water removes pressure found on land and allows my inner-self to explore. I look to the sun through the surface, deep under water in awe. I am a good swimmer, but also afraid of the water. The silence below the surface; the danger lurking beyond sight; the seclusion; combining to create a sense of exhilaration, of anticipation. The inspiration of Shape in Water was from the image I had of a man falling to the bottom of the ocean. The subconscious thinking process that he had lingering between life and death. It embodies the memory of my sense of water and the conflict between desire and fear.
