歸屬 Gui Shu (Belong)

Sally Richardson
Gui Shu (Belong) is an immersive performance experience combining sound, film and choreography currently in development. From the laneways, malls and teeming streets of Taipei to the rivers, bushscapes and surburbia of Western Australia, this is a series of arresting portraits of people and place, reflecting how culture and space shapes us.
 
In performance, each artist initiates and embodies her own story drawing on pivotal experiences to present shifting memories that transform over time. By interweaving languages, movement, live sound/music and vision, this project reveals our common quest for identity and gender equality within changing political landscapes.
Gui Shu (Belong) is an intercultural collaboration between Australia and Taiwan, developed over three years through residencies in Taipei, Mandurah, Bundanon and Perth. Award-winning director Sally Richardson leads a talented team of renowned independent artists from both countries supported by leading national producers Performing Lines WA.
