Choreographic Exploration with Zu You


Zu You picked Amos Yee as his contemporary Chinese character. He used a Chinese folded fan as both pen and paper/book, and had the progression of: being determined -> facing rejection -> picking himself up again -> being determined again.

His phrase was mostly front-oriented, and he created it with the use of the mirror as well, adding that he included certain 技巧 because he felt that Chinese dance required the incorporation of technique skills.

The music he used was a randomly chosen instrumental, but he felt that this piece of music suited the emotional development of the solo as well, so it was not completely random.
