Under choreographer Chen Wu-kang’s long hair and rugged, masculine exterior are years of classical training and a unique eye for relationships and movements. In this video, he talks about his young dancer self, what choreography means to him, and the recent social movements that inspired his new piece, Playing Dead.
“I think choreography is the biggest in the world, for me, because it’s integrated art. It integrates fine arts, visual art and music. It has mathematics, a lot of physics and movements, body, space and architecture.”
