Masses Creation Team


Sound, Installation, Performance

The rambunctious masses, the alienated individuals.


Masses, which has been awarded the Performing Arts Award in the 18th Taishin Arts Award, brings together dance, sound and light effects, and the mise-en-scène on stage to penetratingly look into powerlessness and contradictions of individuals within enraged masses, attempting to recreate the “psychic locale” of social movements. Masses·Singular employs various elements used in Masses, and transforms a stage work into an exhibition work. Through sounds, transparent quarantine installations, and random performance of postures, all of which constitute an intervention into the exhibition site, director Wang Shi-Wei, choreographer Tien Hsiao-Tzu, sound artist Li Tzi-Mei, and lighting artist Helmi Fita join forces again, and invite the audience to perceive the imminent commotions afar and explore individual loneliness and confusion in masses. To find out more about the creative journey of producing Masses, please see the link below:
