Dan Su is a transdisciplinary artist, composer, musician and choreographer who works with sound and movement through experiments, compositions, improvisations, conceptual frameworks, performances, installations, experimental music, contemporary 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.

su dance110 is the alias of Dan Su in the realm of sound & music.

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 both corporeal and non-human movements, actions, voice, improvisations and experimentations with self-built objects, feedback systems, and materials, in combination with analogue synthesizers, electronics, and found sound. Working with rooms, sites, and situations, their practice explores and challenges what could be unpredictably experienced and perceived. 

"Hunting a vision of Raw, Pure & Uncompromising." Formally trained in 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.), they hybridize scientific and artistic thinking, situating 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.
