Dan Su is a transdisciplinary artist, composer, musician and choreographer who work with sound and movement through experiments, compositions, conceptual improvisations, performances, installations, experimental music, dance, and visual art. With a pop gesture, their work tell the open narratives. 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. su dance110 is the alias of Dan Su in the realm of sound & music.
"Hunting a vision of Raw, Pure & Uncompromising." Formally trained in dance/choreography (HZT, Berlin University of the Arts, HfS Ernst Busch, University of Wisconsin-Madison) and quantitative methodology/statistics in Educational Psychology (University of Wisconsin-Madison U.S.), they hybridize scientific and artistic thinking in their experimental design, sound research and movement research. 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 both corporeal and non-human movements, actions, voice, improvisations and experimentations with self-built objects, feedback systems, and raw materials, in combination with electronics. Working with rooms, sites, situations, and unplanned narratives, their practice explores and challenges what could be unpredictably experienced and perceived.
