LIU Kuan-Hsiang


60 mins | Dance performance

The dancer transforms into a medium of Shiva, and enters the space of the Indian epic. Sometimes shattering the fourth wall, he connects with the audience with his identity in real life. Sometimes he calls upon Shiva’s lovers, Parvati and Sati, to show their romantic entanglement on stage. Sometimes they immerse in each other’s affection and play; sometimes they sing festive celebrations; and sometimes they war and roar. In the blink of an eye, the story told on stage is the self who has already dealt with a life of yesterday; but in the next blink of an eye, the story becomes Shiva looking at the agonizing Sati in self-immolation. This constitutes the foundation of SH69VAwhich all comes back to one question: “WHAT IS STORY?”

LIU Kuan-Hsiang

Debuted at Cloud Gate Theater, the work Kids draws inspiration from sound recordings that Liu made with his mother in the hospice unit before her passing. Using these recordings as scoring materials, the power of the dance impacted the audience profoundly. This work was awarded the Performing Arts Award in the 15th Taishin Arts Award. It was also selected into the Aerowaves Spring Forward in 2017, and invited to be performed in Denmark, Beijing, Hong Kong, and Singapore. In 2017, Liu choreographed Karma—an attempt to dig into the barest and rawest part of the human mind—won the production support of the Art Makers Project by the Cloud Gate Foundation. In 2018, Liu choreographed for the first time for Cloud Gate 2. In addition to choreography, Liu composed the music for the dance as well. In 2022, he directed his first film, Metamorphosis 2021, which has been shortlisted in the Taoyuan Film Festival after a competition with another 134 films.
