歸屬 GUI SHU is a new immersive performance experience with accompanying video installation that combines the artistry of sound, vision and dance artists from Taiwan and WA. From the laneways, malls and teeming streets of Taipei to the bush scapes and surburbia of WA, GUI SHU is a journey and insight to these people and places, to reveal how culture shapes us. What is other, isolating and familiar is re-framed and connected in a collective space to seek the shared moments where we can all belong.

Creative collaboration is at the core of GUI SHU, an inter-cultural project developed through a series of residencies in both countries over the last 4 years. In 2018 we had the final two stages of creative development; at ADAM (Asia Discovers Asia Meeting) in Taipei to bring together the key elements of sound, vision and choreography and reunite with the Taiwanese team; secondly during a PICA visual dramaturgy residency with Pilar Mata Dupont focusing on the video installation. Final rehearsals will commence in October 2019 to lead into the premiere of GUISHU at the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts (PICA) in November 2019.

The staging and presentation of GUI SHU will be a visceral, multidisciplinary experience. The video installation will be staged as a gallery exhibition, concentrating on films from the years of collaboration behind the making of GUI SHU. The immersive performance in the theatre will be the live, real time audience experience to meet the collaborators.

There are multiple configurations for touring GUI SHU. We would like to introduce members of the team, share excerpts of the work and ideas on formats for presentation, including the full production to premiere in November, as well as smaller scale touring versions of the project as video installation with interacting live performance elements.
