Shannon’s art making process involves observing, envisioning, problem solving, and sharing. Shannon seeks her path that is original and aligns with the present moment. Space, sound, movement, texture and imagery interest Shannon and call for her to make art that inspires, that speaks her truth. As a queer Taiwanese that practices breaking, hip hop, contemporary floorwork, and Wing Tsun Martial Arts, Shannon is able to view inward and outward with multiple perspectives; reflect and challenge to find harmony.
Shannon identifies as a multi-disciplinary artist, dancer-choreographer, queer creator. Shannon has shown work in La Mama, Movement Research in Judson Memorial Church, Dixon Place, Triskelion Arts, Prospect Park, The Landmark Loew’s Theater, and has done residencies with Dance in Bushwick, Spoke the Hub, Chen Dance Center, and The Creators Collective.
Playing with time, is playing with the connections between beings. If I am faster than time, can I draw you closer?
This current global situation is immensely sad and challenging, including the necessary cancellations/ postponements/ restructuring of opportunities, but we are so grateful for how you and the Performance Mix #34: Remotely Yours team has honored all of the artists involved – artistically, financially, and emotionally. In these uncertain, confusing times, we feel taken care of & clearly communicated with. Thank you.
