Taiwan Festival: Yujun Wang - 明 Dawn To Dawn

Book tickets

Acclaimed multidisciplinary music artist Yujun Wang will launch her new album Dawn to Dawn in two intimate concerts as part of the Taiwan Festival 2024.

Yujun Wang draws on numerous art forms in her unique concert performances. Her music revolutionises the relationship between music, theatre, dance, and performing arts, entrancing audiences creatively and intellectually. Having worked with the likes of Nick Cave, been resident artist at the Treasure Hills Artists Village in Taipei and learned oud in Istanbul, Yujun Wang is a radically diverse artist.

Keen on interdisciplinary exploration, Yujun has developed a stereoscopic approach to shaping the sound of music. Her practice draws upon observations of everyday life and ordinary people, transmuting mundane and fleeting impressions into a sonic documentation of complex emotional shades. Yujun’s passion towards her craft is reflected whether in sharing indescribable moments of beauty with a theatre or black box audience, composing solo, or endlessly refining each note with her band. Yujun makes music in various corners of 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 bringing cultures into dialogue with one another.
