Dan Su (a.k.a. su dance110) is a transdisciplinary artist, composer and performer who works with sound and movement in experiments, compositions, improvisations, conceptual frameworks, performances, installations, experimental contemporary music, dance, and media art. Centered around the interplay of ontology, cybernetics, psychology, and methodology, their work attempts to evoke the fifth ghostly dimension, and to create new experiences in the unimaginable landscapes for further knowing.

 

Philosophically influenced by the second-order cybernetics, they look into the interactivity within plurality. Politically they focus on raising the voice of marginalized and  oppressed beings. Their choreography includes elements of bodies at the borderline, fragmented, uncontrolled, or hung bodies, grounded in their "Lazy Body" movement practice. Their sound practice incorporates corporeal movements, actions, voice, improvisations and experimentations with acoustic instruments, objects, electronics, space, and situations. Shaping the characters/elements in relation to the larger structures/contexts plays an important role in their composition.

 

su dance110 creates work in a “Raw, Pure & Uncompromising” way. They studied dance/choreography(HZT, Berlin University of the Arts & HfS Ernst Busch Berlin) and quantitative methodology/statistics in Educational Psychology(University of Wisconsin-Madison U.S.). Hybridising scientific and artistic thinking, they situate their work at the intersections of multiple media and methodologies. Experimental design, sound research, movement research, and processing still and moving images are their practices that feed to each other back and forth.
