Uphill by Shang-Chi Sun
With his solo dance piece, Traverse, SUN Shang-chi walks on a journey of a dancer’s body. Aerowaves, the network of dance across Europe, lost no time to select Traverse as one of Europe’s most outstanding works in 2012. Taking the concept of the journey of dancer’s body in Traverse as a starting point, SUN Shang-chi extends his imagination in the newly composed Uphill. With unstopped change of movements, the bodies continue their journey through various psychological statuses. It starts from a curve in Uphill – process of the curve will cause delay; fragments of full pictures and impact of emotions will be evoked during the lag. Uphill explores the beauty of the not yet existent.
