Through your eyes, I see myself…

透過你的雙眼,我看見我自己

Come on a contemplative journey through the streets, suburbs and open spaces of Taipei and Perth in Steamworks Arts’ latest production, 歸屬 Gui Shu (Belong). This moving new work is an invitation to reflect on moments of isolation, connection and finding your way.

Devised by an extraordinary interdisciplinary team, each performance fuses dance, music, sound and video projections live on stage.

The result of a 4-year intercultural exchange, 歸屬 Gui Shu (Belong) asks how our understanding of self and home are shaped by our experiences with others.

In addition, 歸屬 Gui Shu (Belong) will share a video installation of footage from both countries, to tell the story up until now.

Video Installation

22 October – 22 December
PICA Reading Room
Duration: 8 minutes

View the 歸屬 Gui Shu (Belong) video installation, a sweeping history of the project so far, featuring scenes from Taiwan and Western Australia.
