Chun-liang Liu is an interdisciplinary artist previously based in Melbourne and now in Taipei. She is the creative director for Long Distance Collective Theatre Company in Taiwan and a theatre/dance critic for http://pareviews.ncafroc.org.tw. She is currently working on a 3-year project “Food Concert” co-produced by Taipei Arts Festival and Castlemaine State Festival.
Chun-liang investigates sensorial experiences, movements, and public spaces. Her works often question the nature of public space and the transformative power of human body such as A-Daily Sensorial Walks (2017, Taipei). She also curated public interventions such as Huashan Surprise Attack (2015/16, Taipei), End of April, Beginning of May (2015, unauthorised public performances, Melbourne, co-curated with Clinton Green). She also investigates via food and social practices, such as her residency in ADAM Project 2017 in which she invites international artists to cook in her place and create a situation regarding culture, negotiation of space, etc. Another work that is relevant in interaction and food was Strange Intimacy (2015, Manila) in the FringeManila Festival, in which participants bring their own food in exchange of the performance.
She works collaboratively with adaptive practice and improvisations, such as her tape recording project in Time_Place_Space: Nomad residency. She also collaborates with Australian experimental musician Clinton Green as performance group MoeChee (默契) since 2014.
Besides directing and writing, she’s trained in jazz, modern, and post-modern dance. She also takes Body-Mind Centering and other somatic practices. Sound works include debut Friction(2016) with field recording both in Melbourne and Taiwan. Be in Hot, Humid, or Ghostly Cold (2018, with Clinton Green as Moechee).
