3 D Metal Series

is an ongoing solo sound-movement performance series. Metal, the raw material and objects, function both as the instruments and collaborators to bridge body movements with sound making. This series openly works with sites, choreography, found objects and unplanned narratives, exploring at the intersection of new electro-acoustic music and choreography.

3 D : metal objects | movement | voice

Tuō (July 2023)

Tanzhalle Wiesenburg, Berlin

This performance focuses on the specific movement vocabulary “tuō” which is the pinyin for the Chinese character “拖”, meaning the movement of pulling or dragging. It explores how the sound generated through this movement "拖” shapes between body, objects and space, suggesting the phenomenon beyond the character, the dragging spaceman. The body plays a dual role, both physically and sonically, working with the objects as instruments together to compose the sound with the aid of choreography and a quadraphonic set up. Commissioned by Sommerfest.ival 2023 of Wiesenburg Berlin.

3 D metal series part 1: Hull (April 2022)

Hošek Contemporary, Berlin

This performance embraces the space of the hull site-specifically. Not only objects, movement and voice are the motivations for sound, but also it integrates the organic happening of the falling concrete from the costume as the remnants from the last metal performance. In addition to the analog sound happening, the digital algorithmic ant which runs independently is part of the installation and performance. The parallel happenings of sound and visual dependent or independent from each other are the threads for this site-specific fragmented story telling.

On needle and wheel (December 2022)

Apartment Project, Berlin

The wheel was found on-site at Apartment Project, afterwards the character who wore long hairs nervously looking for the needles that showed up in their dream was born. The wind coming from the wheel that constantly blew into the audience's face reoccurred accidentally.

The text "Long Needle" in the performance is one of chapters from Dan Su's fiction writings.

Attic (August 2021)

Torhaus Stadt Wehlen, DE

The first solo metal performance happened site-specifically at the attic of the historical building Torhaus in Stadt Wehlen during the residency program OIIOIOOI. The performance shaped around a creature who lived in the dusted ceiling and only once a while came down to make noise and blew the dust into the audience's face. A twenty minutes sound performance and an installation with objects and materials found on site.
