BUBBLE is a collaboration between Artistic Director and Choreographer Shaun Parker and award-winning bubble performance artist from Taiwan, Mr. Su Chung Tai. During 2020 and 2021, Parker and Su will explore bubble art and technology to create a new work where both minimalist and epic sculptures are formed alongside outstanding singers and dancers. This experimental work will question to what extent the themes of the genesis of the universe can be represented using the forms of bubble architecture and the human body.
Parker will take a research-led and consultative approach to the development with project partners and consultants. An adjacent conversation and program of activities shall be undertaken with Sydney’s Taiwanese-Australian community and will inform the development of this project.
The development of this major new work will include residency, exchange and creative developments in Sydney and Taiwan.
The Creative Development process for BUBBLE will also see the creative team presenting BUBBLE INTERACT community engagement programs during 2020 with support from the City of Sydney, City of Ryde and City of Parramatta through Parramatta Riverside Theatres.
