What is hiding behind the body? Is it only flesh and blood that forms the basic structure of a living being? How do religion and politics influence the individual bodyâs performance? What happens if the body lives in a wrong space? Do we recognize our own bodies or does the body somehow choose the right organic incarnation? The body gives us evidence, but society redefines it.
Dialogue II is inspired by â4.48 Psychosisâ from Sarah Kane. A dialogue between a dancer and word, the word gives the impulse to move the body in space.
âShang Chi Sun from Taiwan is turning unbelievably fast. He dances on a narrow track of light: his shape seems precise, aggressive, creative and most of all unpredictable.â
Mittelbayerische Zeitung, 26th Nov 2008
âBest choreography went to Shang Chi Sun for his exquisite self-presentation of âDialogue IIâ. A captivating virtuoso performance of body part rotations, scarcely giving the audience a chance to draw breath, or take in the awe-inspiring spectacle.â
