As a choreographer and dancer, Su Wen-chi has thought through the fundamentals of choreography, which she regards the frontier of dance. Leading her own dance company YiLab., Su contemplates on how the stage connects sensory and interpretative faculties of the body. This investigation begins with unbroken concentration on the body and the space.

 

In Off the Map, Su seeks visceral understanding of the interior of the body through external clues. By juxtaposing space and senses, she maps out the trajectories of inner monologue through bodily movements precisely in order to transgress their parameters. The body becomes the vehicle for transition to a different dimension of presence.
