Since their first collaboration in 2012, HUANG Yi and KUKA have toured 17 countries. By taking this international experience and combining with HUANG Yi’s own improved expertise in program language and industrial design, they have now decided to open a café, where parents and children can play together. The sounds and movements of the café become music and dance, everyone who is curious about the future are all welcome to have a seat and redefine the boundaries between art and life.
Artistic Director, Choreographer, Stage, Lighting & Visual Design / HUANG Yi
HUANG Yi is the founder and artistic director of HUANG YI STUDIO +, and was named by Dance Magazine as one of 2011’s “25 to Watch.” His pioneering work is steeped in his fascination with the partnership between humans and technology. He interweaves continuous movement with mechanical and multimedia elements to create a form of dance which corresponds with the flow of data, effectively making the performer a dancing instrument. Widely considered as one of Asia’s most prolific choreographers, HUANG Yi was invited to perform at the TED 2017 conference, which received coverage on CNN and TIME magazine. His works Huang Yi and KUKA and Under the Horizon were highlighted by the International Society for the Performing Arts in 2015 and 2016 as new works to watch, while his 2019 work A Million Miles Away was chosen by the National Performing Arts Center in its first joint commission program.
HUANG YI STUDIO +
Founded in 2010, HUANG YI STUDIO + is a pioneer in boundary-breaking dance performance with cutting-edge technology, taking pride in being a “laboratory” that creates new possibilities for imaging what performing arts could be, while bringing human warmth and touch to technology through incorporating technology into art. The studio has toured nearly 20 countries across the world, and received widespread attention in Europe’s theater circles when it was selected by the Théâtre National de Chaillot for the theater’s first artist-in-residence project.
