Sometime when life get intense and overwhelming,
I find my mind wondering while I try to accomplish the mundane, everyday tasks.
The matcha green Tatung Rice Cooker on stage is a traditional Taiwanese kitchenware.
It is one of the first things my mom received from a distance relative after arriving in Canada ten years ago.
Tatung Rice Cooker sits in every Taiwanese household.
It is a very practical and important helper in the kitchen, and a symbol of home,familiarity and comforting warm dishes.

Luna is a dance about, for, and with my matcha green Tatung Rice Cooker – a piece of traditional Taiwanese kitchenware. Tatung Rice Cooker sits in every Taiwanese household. It is a very practical and important helper in the kitchen, and a symbol of home, familiarity and comforting warm dishes.
A seamless blend of Baroque and contemporary song and dance, this interdisciplinary performance is a powerful reclamation of the story of Dido, The Queen of Carthage, and her legacy as a political leader, an empire builder and a woman of colour.
Vancouver based contemporary dance artist
