A dance score, a light robot, a virtual world - different rooms, some objects, 4 personas - interrelated in a mix of realities. What would happen when they all come together? When the past and future meet one another, what timezone do we live in?

Nien Tzu Weng is opening her studio to invite people to travel through propositions of landscapes she carried with her from Taiwan, experimenting the density and intensity through multiverses, where realities co-influence a multi-layered temporality.

Artistic intent

My creative process involves language barrier, internal dialogues between western and eastern philosophies, questions on cross generational and culture ideology. My performances often include issues of gender equality, personal identity, and playing dynamics between audiences and performers, and I am looking to facilitate a space that reflects diverse perspectives.
