Taiwan Festival: Yujun Wang - 明 Dawn To Dawn

(This is a past event and is no longer running)


Join us for the launch of multidisciplinary Taiwanese music artist Yujun Wang‘s new album 明 Dawn to Dawn!

Keen on interdisciplinary exploration, she draws upon observations of everyday life and ordinary people, transmuting mundane and fleeting impressions into a sonic documentation of complex emotional shades.

Yujun makes music all around the world, recording vibrations that are native to the local atmosphere and their rhythms of life, uncovering through indigenous poems and songs new ways to bring cultures into dialogue with one another.

Yujun Wang draws on numerous art forms in her distinctive concerts, in which she creates a special relationship between music and performance, engaging audiences creatively and intellectually. She has collaborated with many diverse artists, including Nick Cave and Riverbed Theatre, and was resident artist at the Treasure Hills Artists Village in Taipei.

明 Dawn to Dawn

“明 Ming.” composed of the characters for sun and moon, encompasses our days as they unfold in the cyclical rotation of day and night. The tranquility and mystery of the early morning is captivating. Waking up when the entire city is still asleep feels like initiating a dialogue with the world, savouring the fresh air and serenity.

I gradually fell in love with creating, contemplating, and being alone in these early morning moments. This performance brings forth music created during such times.

Through the immersive sound field, lighting design, and the overlay of visuals, we aim to provide the audience with a theatrical listening experience, enveloped in both sight and sound. We hope that through this performance, our audiences can embark on a journey ‘From One Tomorrow to Another Dawn,’ drawing closer to the artistic creations nurtured and grown in Taiwan through the medium of music.” – Yujun Wang
