For the seventh year in his decade-long choreography project, SU Wei-chia has once again explored out the distinctive contours of the NTT. In FreeSteps AR Yours, audiences use their tablets or smartphones as they walk freely within various spaces in the venue, while using augmented reality technology to see different dimensions of the dance.


In this work, SU continues his interest in exploring the body. With refined physicality and dance journey of six acclaimed Taiwanese dancers, the body landscape is delineated along selected curvatures in the NTT, each offering a different perspective of the dancers. With the help of digital technology, time and space are no longer limits, allowing the audience to freely traverse time and distance, spectating and performance.
